The season of giving is nearly upon us. Unfortunately, the holiday season doesn’t give back an abundance of quirky contests.

Not that there aren’t some good options. In fact, I would love to participate in a Santa Speedo Run, a short charity fun run that requires entrants to run in Speedos and Santa hats. OK, actually, I’d rather not wear a Speedo. But I love the idea of it all.

The only problem is that these runs are in far-away cities such as Boston and Atlanta, and as a general practice, I prefer not to drive more than 4 hours to expose myself to strangers.

That’s why I’m asking you for an early Christmas present. Please find me a quirky, odd, or ridiculous contest to compete in somewhere in North Carolina this December.

Or better yet, start a contest. As long as I can keep my clothes on.
