who enters using the below method of entry will receive one (1) entry in the Promotion. Limit one (1) eligible

5. Conditions of Entry: By entering or participating in this Promotion, Entrant agrees to be bound by these
Official Rules and the decisions of Sponsor and its authorized representatives, which are final and binding in all
matters concerning this Promotion. Entries not legitimately submitted in accordance with these Official Rules
are void. Only qualified entries received by Sponsor during the Promotion Period are eligible for participation.
All entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned.
Entrants may be required to provide the following personal information in order to be eligible for a Promotion
prize: first, middle and last name, month, day and year of birth, email address, complete mailing address
(including city, state or province, and zip or postal code) and phone number (including area code) (collectively
or individually, “Personal Information”). All requested Personal Information must be provided to participate
in the Promotion and to be eligible to win a prize. Unintelligible entries; entries with incomplete, invalid,
incorrect or noncurrent information; entries that are counterfeit, damaged or tampered with in any way; and
entries with printing, production or typographical errors will be disqualified. Disqualified entries and entries
that are late, lost, damaged, misdirected, stolen or not delivered are not the responsibility of Sponsor and will
be disqualified. Sponsor is not responsible if a potential winner does not receive his or her prize because
erroneous, expired, canceled, fraudulent or fake information was provided during Promotion. Proof of sent
entry and/or entry receipt (such as a copy of a “thank you” screen or message) does not constitute proof of
actual receipt of entry by Sponsor for purposes of this Promotion.
Participation must be by Entrant. Participation by any other individual or entity, and/or originating at any other
website, email address or phone number, including, but not limited to, commercial promotion, subscription
notification and/or promotion entering service sites, is invalid and will be disqualified from this Promotion.
Any attempt by any Entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple email
addresses, phone numbers, identities, registrations or logins; entries through a sweepstakes club or similar
entity; or any other unauthorized method of entry will void all of Entrant’s entries and Entrant will be
disqualified from the entire Promotion. Submitting mass entries or entries generated by an automated
program, script or macro, or the use of any other similar device, program or method to enter this Promotion is
prohibited and will result in disqualification.
In the event of a dispute as to the identity of Entrant, the authorized account holder of the email address used
to enter will be deemed to be Entrant. A potential winner may be required to show proof of being the
authorized account holder. The “authorized account holder” of an email address is the natural person assigned
to that email address by a service provider or any other organization (business, educational institution, etc.)
responsible for assigning accounts to that email address. If the identity of the individual who actually
participated in the Promotion cannot be resolved to Sponsor’s satisfaction, the affected individual’s entry will
be deemed ineligible.
Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any individual it finds to be in violation of these Official Rules,
tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Promotion (including, but not limited to, tampering
with websites, email addresses or phone numbers), or acting in a non-sportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any
attempt to undermine the operation of the Promotion may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and Sponsor

The Prize consists of up to a $1,000.00 Academy Sports + Outdoors allowance to be used on pre-approved Nike
shoes (adult sizing only).
The pre-approved shoes are only available in adult sizes.
Value of selected shoes is based upon Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (“MSRP”).
A potential winner must select pre-approved shoes with a total MSRP that will get closest to $1,000
without exceeding $1,000.
Any difference in value between the MSRP of all shoes selected and $1,000 (the “Remainder”) will be
issued in an Academy Sports + Outdoors gift card for the value of the Remainder.
Remainder cannot exceed $100 in value.
Actual value of prize may vary. No compensation or substitution will be provided for any difference in prize
value. Sponsor shall in no way be responsible for any cancellations, delays, postponements, diversions,
substitutions, changes in service or accommodations, or any other act, omission, or result thereof, caused by
any third party. All prizes must be accepted as awarded without substitution and are not, in whole or in part,
assignable, transferable or available for resale. Prizes have no cash surrender value, except where required by
law. Sponsor has made no warranty, representation or guarantee, express or implied, in fact or in law, with
respect to any prize. This includes, without limitation, any warranty, representation or guarantee related to
any prize’s quality or fitness for a particular purpose. Prizes are subject to availability and Sponsor may
substitute a prize (or a component thereof) with another prize (or component thereof) of equal or greater
value if the prize is not available for any reason, as determined in Sponsor’s sole discretion. Federal, state, and
local taxes and all other costs and expenses associated with acceptance and use of any prize not specified
herein as being awarded are the winner’s sole responsibility. Failure to accept or use any portion of any prize
may not relieve the winner of his/her/their tax obligations associated with winning the prize. Prize specific
terms and conditions apply. If the winner elects not to partake in any portion of the prize, or does not deplete
the full value of the prize, any remainder of the prize that is unused will be forfeited and will not be subject to
further or additional compensation.
Any prize details not specified above will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. If a winner is
disqualified, not eligible or for any other reason cannot accept the prize as stated, then Sponsor may randomly
select a new winner from the pool of eligible Entrants. The winner will be required to submit, where legal, a
completed and signed Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability & Publicity Release (the “Release”), along with a
properly completed U.S. Department of the Treasury Internal Revenue Service Form W-9, within the required
time period to be eligible to receive any prize (if applicable; required time period will be communicated in the
Only the number of each prize set forth in these Official Rules will be awarded. In the event that technical or
any other reasons cause more than the stated number of prizes as set forth in these Official Rules to be
available and/or claimed, Sponsor may award only the stated number of prizes by a random drawing from
among all legitimate, unawarded, eligible prize claims.
7. Winner Determination and Verification: The selection of a potential prize winner (the “Prize Drawing”) is
within the sole discretion of Sponsor. Within a reasonable time after the end of the Promotion Period, one (1)
potential winner will be randomly drawn from the pool of all eligible entries received during the Promotion
Period. If the Prize Drawing is scheduled to take place on a holiday, the Prize Drawing will be conducted the
following business day.
Potential winners are each subject to eligibility verification, on an ongoing basis, by Sponsor, whose decisions
are final and binding. An Entrant is not a winner of any prize, even if notified of being a winner and/or issued
any item of value, unless and until Entrant’s eligibility has been, and continues to be verified to the
satisfaction of Sponsor.
To be verified as eligible to receive a prize, each potential winner must fulfill all requirements and continue to
comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules, and not be disqualified for any reason. Each
potential winner will be notified by email and/or phone (subject to Sponsor’s discretion). If a potential winner
of any prize cannot be contacted using the information provided or fails to respond to Sponsor’s attempt to
notify them of selection within three (3) business days; if any prize or notification is returned as undeliverable
or yields an error or undeliverable type “bounce back” email (regardless if the message is ultimately delivered
to the recipient); if the potential winner fails to sign and return the Release or any other required
documentation or fails to comply with these Official Rules or with the reasonable directions or instructions of
Academy personnel; if a potential winner is unable or unwilling to accept the prize as stated; or if the potential
winner cannot be verified as eligible for any other reason at any time before, during or after the Promotion
Period, the potential winner is disqualified and forfeits the prize and an alternate will be selected.
An Entrant must make shoe selections, and complete and return all required documentation for verification of
eligibility no later than thirty (30) days from date of notification of being a winner.
In the event that an Entrant is disqualified for any reason, the foregoing process will be repeated until the prize
is awarded or until three (3) attempts have been made to award the prize and each attempt has failed. Sponsor
will identify each potential winner and verify the potential winner’s eligibility. If unable to verify the potential
winner’s eligibility, Sponsor will select an alternative potential winner within a reasonable time thereafter.
In any case, the final winner will be determined, and the prize will be awarded, within a reasonable time after
the end of the Promotion Period. The name of the winner may be obtained by printing the requestor’s name,
address, city, state and zip code on a 3×5″ postcard and mailing it to Academy Sports + Outdoors, Attn:
Academy Sports + Outdoors 2023 Run Month Sweepstakes – Nike Promotion Winner List, 1800 North Mason
Road, Katy, TX 77449. Limit one (1) request per person, per household.
Odds of winning any prize depend on the number of eligible entries received.
8. Limitations of Liability: By entering or participating in this Promotion in any way, each Entrant, and winner
agrees to release, discharge, indemnify and hold harmless Sponsor, Content Hosts, Nike, Inc., and their
respective subsidiaries, affiliates, vendors, advertising or promotional agencies and distributors, and each of
their respective parent companies and each such company’s officers, directors, employees and agents, as well
as the immediate family (spouse, parents, siblings and children) and household members of each such
individual (collectively, the “Released Parties”) from and against any claim or cause of action related to this
Promotion, including, but not limited to, infringement of any right of publicity or intellectual property;
threatened or actual injury, loss or damage to any person, including death and disability; defamation or
portrayal in a false light (intentional and unintentional); invasion of privacy; and damage to or loss of property,
arising out of such Entrant’s participation in the Promotion or receipt or use, non-use or misuse of any prize.
In no event will Released Parties be responsible or liable for any damages or losses of any kind, including
indirect, incidental, consequential or punitive damages arising out of this Promotion. (Some jurisdictions may
not allow the limitations or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages or exclusion of implied
warranties. Check local laws for restrictions regarding these limitations or exclusions.)
Entrants waive any right to claim ambiguity in these Official Rules. The Released Parties are not responsible
for: (1) technical failures of any kind; (2) incorrect or inaccurate information, whether caused by Entrants, any
internet or email service provider, any promotional or advertising agency, printing or computing errors, or by
any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Promotion; (3) unauthorized human
intervention in any part of the entry process or the Promotion; (4) technical or human error that may occur in
the administration of the Promotion, the processing of entries or the announcement of the winner and prize;
(5) any injury or damage to persons or property that may be caused, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part,
by Entrant’s participation in the Promotion; (6) the receipt, use or misuse of any prize; or (7) any other errors
in any materials, information or announcements associated with the Promotion. If for any reason an Entrant’s
entry is confirmed to have been erroneously deleted, lost or otherwise destroyed or corrupted by Sponsor,
Entrant’s sole remedy is another entry in the Promotion, subject to availability and provided that the Promotion
has not then expired.
9. Publicity and Entry Materials: Except where prohibited, participation in the Promotion and/or acceptance
of any prize constitutes each Entrant’s, and the winner’s consent to Sponsor’s use of his or her name, likeness,
photograph, voice, opinions, statements and/or hometown and state for promotional or advertising purposes
in any media, worldwide and in perpetuity, without further notice, payment or consideration.
10. Right to Modify or Cancel: The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Official Rules will not
affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision. In the event any provision is found invalid or
unenforceable, these Official Rules will otherwise remain in effect in accordance with their terms as if the
invalid or unenforceable provision was never included. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official
Rules does not constitute a waiver of that provision.
Sponsor may cancel, suspend and/or modify the Promotion, or any part of it, if any mistake, clerical or
typographical error, omission, fraud, technical failure, tampering, computer virus or other factor, technical or
otherwise, beyond Sponsor’s reasonable control, impairs Sponsor’s ability to properly conduct the Promotion,
as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, subject to any applicable law or regulation. In such event,
Sponsor may, but is not obligated to, award any applicable prize(s) by random drawing from among the eligible
entries received up to the time of the cancellation, suspension or modification of the Promotion. Inclusion in
such random drawing is Entrant’s exclusive remedy under such circumstances.
11. Disputes: Except where prohibited by law, Entrant agrees that: (1) all disputes, claims and causes of action
arising out of or connected with this Promotion or any prize awarded will be resolved individually, without
resort to any form of class action, and exclusively by the appropriate federal or state court located in Harris
County, Texas; and (2) all claims, judgments and awards will be limited to actual out-of-pocket costs incurred,
including costs associated with entering this Promotion, but in no event attorneys’ fees. All issues and
questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules, or the
rights or obligations of Entrant or Sponsor in connection with the Promotion, are governed by and construed
in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law
rules, no matter what jurisdiction, that would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than
12. Privacy: By entering this Promotion, Entrant agrees to Sponsor’s manner of collection, use, retention and
disclosure of Entrant’s Personal Information submitted in connection with the Promotion. Personal
