It isn't the size of the gift that matters, but the size of the heart that gives it. ~Eileen Elias Freeman

Spartan Chicked Holiday Gift Swap!

When Carrie Adams, and the other founding members of the Spartan Chicks, created a FaceBook group, it was for the purposes of connecting women across the country who were all interested in Obstacle Course Racing. It was intended to give them a safe space to discuss training issues, racing tactics, share concerns, while supporting and motivating each other. In a short period of time, this group has grown from a tiny group of 100 ladies, to an 8000+ crowd of Chicks. More importantly, the group has identified itself as a real community of united women, running with each other at races, keeping tabs on each other via email, connecting via phone for workouts - a community of Chicks, always ready to chat and lend a hand at a moment's notice, and show Obstacle Racing that women are a force to be reckoned with.

In that vein, we're launching our Second Annual Spartan Chicked Holiday Gift Swap! It is open to women across the globe (yes, no matter where you do your Chicking, you can participate!) to sign up. You will be provided with the name and address of one other Chick, with whom you'll get to share some Holiday Season cheer. Gifts range from simple cards and baked goods, to fun and functional fitness gear, to handmade scarves, blankets or ornaments. The only limit is your creativity! We're not looking for you to spend billions, but help continue to unite our community of awesome ladies, by connecting with one specific Chick around the holidays.

To join in on the fun, fill out this form with your information. In a few days, you will be contacted with the name and address of your Giftee. From there, take matters into your own hands; friend your Giftee on FaceBook, check out what she's been posting about in the Chicks group, get to know her and let your creative juices flow!

Submissions will be accepted until MIDNIGHT (EST), DECEMBER 7th.

For your privacy, your name and address will only be shared with the one Chick who will be sending you a gift. If you do have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me (Even just to say Hi!).

  1. Love the Chicked Gift Swap idea... We do many gift swaps and have had great success with these events.
    Had a gift suggestion... Just a little play on words: The SlingShot Chicken is really a fun gift for gift swaps. It starts fun conversation and people are entertained by it sailing across the room.
    Here is a link to what we are talking about (scroll past the duck to see the chicken):
