The fourth annual ODDyssey Half Marathon will run on June 9, 2013, and this year, thanks to new sponsor OCF Realty, there will be a big new twist – one runner will have the chance to go home with a $30,000.00 down payment for a new house.
The ODDyssey is Philadelphia’s Spring half marathon. It is a serious endurance race utilizing the latest technology in timing (think ezpass), is USTAF certified, boasts prize money for the winners, introduces a beautiful Fairmount Park course and has professional photographers. But, it was innovations like this contest that led to the ODDyssey being recognized in February as one of the 100 best road races in North America by BestRoadRaces.com for putting “their runners as their top priority.”
The ODDyssey has incorporated fun (and optional) elements like costume contests, free massage, free beer and secret challenges throughout the race course for those runners who want to add a little adventure to their race day. OCF Realty is sponsoring one of those secret challenges. Every runner who successfully completes the OCF challenge and every runner who wins their age category will have their name put into raffle. One runner’s name will be drawn and they will have the opportunity to attempt one 60 foot cornhole toss to win a $30,000.00 down payment on a house!
“We are really excited to partner with the ODDyssey Half Marathon.” Says Ori Feibush, President of OCF Realty. “It is the perfect time for a contest like this. The housing market is heating up again, mortgage rates are very low and prices are starting to rise. I think for the past couple of years, people have been reserved about buying a home. With the market improving, this contest invites runners to start dreaming again.” It begs the question, “If you won, where in Philadelphia would you want to buy?”
