Few outdoor brands are as ubiquitous as The North Face. In fact, living in a mountain town, a TNF puffy is as close as it comes to a town uniform 6 months out of the year. (Score one for #EndlessWinter.) These days, TNF is becoming nearly as frequent a sight out on the trails. With their top notch running team, premier events (Endurance Challenge, UTMB & others), running-specific clothing, and lineup of trail shoes, The North Face is one of the leaders in the trail running space. We’re matching up TNF with Smith Optics, another staple up here in Park City, Utah for our fifth in a week’s long series of giveaways to celebrate the launch of Relentless Forward Progress: A Guide to Running Ultramarathons. Be sure to check them all out. (Feel free to spread the word about the book.)
Here’s a sweet video with 2010 TNF Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc champion Jez Bragg talking about the Single-Track.
While running around naked can be fun, it remains prudent (for many reasons) to do one’s trail running clothed and The North Face’s Better Than Naked clothing line is just the ticket. For instance, the Better Than Naked Crew shirts (men’s & women’s) are made with super-lightweight fabric and gender-specific venting. They’re perfect for all your spring, summer, and autumn trail runs. The North Face also makes a Better Than Naked Short (men’s & women’s) that features a zippered rear pocket and inseam-less design to reduce chafing.
Finally, the winner will receive an iRunFar Headsweats hat to keep him or her comfortable and stylish year-round.
