New Balance Sets Up Free Vending Machine Stuffed With Running Gear

New Balance and Westin Hotels teamed up for the free giveaway as part of National Running Day.

If you were in New York City Wednesday morning, specifically near The Westin New York Grand Central hotel, you might have missed out on some free running gear.

As part of the National Running Day activities across the nation, New Balance teamed up with the hotel chain and set up a vending machine that dispensed free running gear. That’s free shoes, shorts, a T-shirt and socks.

Seventy-five sets were available, and all it took to claim the complimentary ensembles was sending out a Tweet on a computer attached to the machine.

It was that simple, and it all began at 10:30 a.m. ET.

After the free giveaway ended, runners were invited to join New York Yankees pitcher David Robertson for a 5K run.
