Jefferson Badger of Appleton, Wisconsin, you’re the winner of an entry into your race of choice at the The North Face Endurance Challenge championship weekend races in the Marin Headlands, a full Better Than Naked outfit before they’re publicly available, and a pair of The North Face Single-Track hybrid trail shoes (iRF TNF Single-Track review)

A quick note: If you will be in the Bay Area between Thursday, December 2 and Sunday, December 5 and would be willing to volunteer at the TNF Endurance Challenge races, please consider doing so. The race is looking for check-in volunteers, aid station captions, and course marshalls, as well as finish line, food, and parking help. You can sign up here. Send an email to the contact at the top of the linked signup spreadsheet… and tell them iRunFar sent you! Seriously, what a fantastic way to watch some great races if you won’t be competing yourself. Even if you are competing, you can volunteer on a day on which you’re not racing.
