Front Runner Tent Giveaway :: Overland News

With spring in full effect and summer on the horizon, we know that everyone is eager to air down their tires and hit the trail. But due to the current stay-at-home orders, which are still in effect across the country, we may need to wait a little bit longer. Thankfully, that doesn’t mean we can’t plan and prepare for our next adventure.

In the spirit of preparedness, overlanding gear manufacturer Front Runner Outfitters is currently running a giveaway (ending on May 18) on their Instagram account where one lucky person can win a rooftop tent. However, this isn’t your typical contest and will require some creativity to secure your entry. Using the hashtag #RoamFromHome, Front Runner is asking followers to post a photo that, “show[s] us creative ways you’re using our products to bring the outdoors to your home.” View their post and full-text here.

For complete rules, and to enter the Roam From Home Giveaway, visit Front Runner Outfitters online: https://www.frontrunneroutfitters.com/en/us/competition
