It shouldn’t be news to you that I am a HUGE Hawkeye sports fan. I grew up 20 ish miles from the University of Iowa Campus, I idolized my hometown Hawkeye – Marv Cook, it took me 5 years – but I graduated from the U of I, and I never left. Yes – I love my Hawkeyes.
I also love running…again this shouldn’t be a surprise…LOL.
Enter the B1G 10k in Chicago on July 23.
Now this is not my first time participating at this event. I did this race in one of the first years, and again in 2016. One of the coolest things about this race is the swag, your race shirt is the Big Ten team of your choice, alternating the main colors every other year. I have always received the gold – but it’s really yellow – shirt. I think I am most excited to finally get the black shirt this year. If you are just a fan of colleges ports, you can choose a generic BTN shirt too.
Ok, shirts aside…. there is also the great post race tailgate atmosphere, beers, sausages, team tents with trophies, and much more.
BUT DID YOU KNOW about the SPIRIT AWARD? In addition to the overall award winners, and the Big Ten Bonus Prize, there is an award for the most spirited fan.
BTN is looking for the most die-hard Big Ten fans at the BTN Big 10K! Post your most spirited photos on race day using the #BTNBig10K hashtag for your chance to win!
So – get out the face paint, maybe you have a home made mascot costume? Then tweet or gram your photos with the above hashtag for a chance to win one of these prizes:
- Football Grand Prize : Two (2) Tickets to the 2017 Big Ten Football Championship Game

I’ll be honest, it’s one of my biggest challenges to wear the BibRave Orange as a Hawkeye fan. Last year I made sure to put on some temporary tattoos, a Hawkeye hat, and sparkle skirt. I will have to get creative this year, the prizes are awesome!
