Dream Race Swag & #AugustaActive review & #GIVEAWAY!

Disclaimer: I was sent some pieces from the Augusta Active collection for review and #GIVEAWAY purposes.  All opinions are my own and I was not compensated in any other way.

I am about to say something that will shock and dismay a lot of people.  I don't run races for the bling or the t-shirt.  Sure, I appreciate a good medal as much as the next guy but what I really want is good swag.  I don't wear t-shirts when I run and so race t-shirts are wasted on me.  What I would LOVE to see are coffee mugs or pint glasses like ultra races have.  Or better yet, TANKS from the races!  No more shirts - tanks instead!  Check out my favorite tanks from races - Phoenix Marathon and Revel Canyon City!  I am instantly happy when I am given a tank top option and I will even pay extra for that chance!


So, since races are so stingy with giving out tank tops, I am going to let you pick a color of your choice from Augusta Active's Training Tanks!  (nice segue way right?)  The winner will also get an Augusta Active backpack and bottle!

Augusta Active is a high quality low price sportswear manufacturer.  A tech material tank top for only $7.99?  That's a steal!  Have a race you need a specific color for?  No worries!  Augusta Active has that color for you!

Look at all the fun colors I got to try.  Purple, burgundy, kelly green, orange, navy and hunter green.  

I have looked everywhere for the dark green in a tank.  And here it is!

It helped me mach my surroundings perfectly when I was in Monterey visiting Rungry Runner!

I love their slogan too!  Go Farther, Play Longer!  They believe that active wear is for the masses so no need to spend gazillions of dollars on stylish colorful running apparel!

The kelly green made a perfect match for my Circus Act Spandits!

The burgundy went well with my For the Birds Spandits skirt!

And the rich jewel tone purple went well with my Galactic over the knee Spandits!

So, one of you gets to pick the color tank top of your choice, one back, stickers and a bottle!  Fun right?  This is an Instagram only Giveaway so make sure you are following both me and Augusta Active on Instagram to win!  Ends May 2, U.S. only.  Look for this picture on Instagram to win!

I am linking up this post with Tuesdays on the Run blog link up with My No-Guilt LifeMCM Mama Runs and Marcia's Healthy Slice!

So which color would you pick?  Head over to Augusta Active and check out the selection and let me know.  Enter the giveaway here! I already am planning my next color!

As always, I wish you Happy Feet,
SD Mom


  1. I could not agree with you more. I'd love to get a super nice water bottle, some socks, jackets, tanks, jewelry...really anything other than a t-shirt from races. That's why I always do the hot chocolate run...for the awesome jacket haha!

  2. I'm so with you on the mugs and glasses over tees! I've run one half where I did get a mug (and I collect mugs, too).

    1. I need to start collecting mugs! Love mugs!

  3. I'm with you! I'm not big on the medals or the shirts,as I typically don't wear them, but I do like glasses or coffee mugs, other memorabilia. The tanks here look great!! I like the purple :-)

  4. I am so with you. Why oh why do more races not give out tanks?? Thanks for linking up!

  5. I like the higher neck on those tanks! Sometimes they can be so low!

  6. I have so many darn race shirts too. It is always nice to get useful items. Maybe the ultras are they way to go. Always good swag there!

  7. tanks are the best...I hate wearing sleeves when I run, unless it's really cold!

  8. I would run ALL the races for coffee mugs. Seriously. Every last one of them. And what a great price on those Augusta Tanks!

  9. I don't like tanks... always afraid of chafing !

  10. I agree! I wore race tees when I was pregnant for jammies, but I only run in tank tops. In the winter I just add gloves and suck it up throughout my warm up.

    I'm partial to pink or any neons, so I'd go with one of the power colors!

  11. I'm over race shirts. I want more race hats. Or jackets.
