Where the Road Ends: Salomon, Suunto, Julbo, and More Contest

Where the Road Ends: A Guide to Trail RunningWe’re starting our Where the Road Ends: A Guide to Trail Running launch contests off with a bang. The winner of this contest will get an amazing set of prizes from Salomon, Suunto, Julbo, CLIF, and Drymax! Oh, wait, did we say winner? We meant winners! One woman and one man will get the full prize set outlined below!

If that’s got you feeling lucky, you should know that this is the first in a week’s long series of giveaways to celebrate the launch of Where the Road Ends. (Feel free to spread the word.)

Salomon logo - blackWe’re starting things off with Salomon, a trail running stalwart and long-time friend of iRunFar. Here’s the awesome head-to-toe trail runner package they’ve pulled together!

Suunto Ambit3 Run

Once the winners are all decked out in their Salomon outfit, they’ll be able to slip on a Suunto Ambit3 Run. The Ambit3 Run is a wrist-top GPS device. It’s got features ranging time of day, stopwatch, and lap timer to full GPS measuring and recording, running cadence, navigation tools, and sleep recovery measurements. Once you’re done your run, you can upload the data to Movescount (as well as Strava and other online platforms) to have a close look at your run.

Julbo LogoSun protection is good for staying upright in the short-term and for your eyes’ health in the long-term. Fortunately, Julbo’s got you and the winners covered on both accounts. The women’s winner will get a pair of the brand new Julbo Breeze sunglasses, while the men’s winner will get to sport the Julbo Aero.

CLIF Bar logoIf you’ve been to an outdoor store in the past couple decades, you’re likely to be familiar with CLIF Bars. Well, CLIF long ago expanded past bars to offer a full range of energy products for outdoor athletes, including trail runners. The lucky winners of this contest will get a box of CLIF Bars, CLIF Bloks Energy Chews, CLIF Shot Energy Gel, and CLIF Hydration Electrolyte Drink Mix? They’ll also get a box of the brand new CLIF Organic Energy Food Oatmeal for some pre-run fueling.

Drymax logoFor the vast majority of trail runners, their running kit isn’t complete without a good pair of socks. Enter Drymax, which is giving away two pairs each of its Lite Trail, Trail, and the new Max Pro Trail to both of this contest’s winners!

    I loved RFP, so I can’t wait to read Where the Road Ends.

    P.S.: I am a male and I like free stuff :-)

  2. ClownRunner

    I lost the 2015 JFK 50 by more than 5 hours, so I need some new gear to get ‘back in gear’! I guess I should read the book too, maybe that would help me as well. Re: gender for the contest, please put me in the Male Clown category. :)

  3. Dean

    Love reading this site but it generally takes a competition to get me involved in the comments.

    For info, male.

  4. Amanda Gustafson

    Looking forward to reading this book and would love to be entered for a chance to win this amazing prize pack. Thank you!

    P.S. I am a female.

  5. Tim

    So far 2016 has been sidelined by a temperamental left shin… but winning something like this will help to pick up my spirits!

  6. James

    I really enjoyed reading RFP. I go back to it whenever I need some inspiration to keep running longer distances. I am really looking forward to purchasing and reading this new book.

    Also, the prize pack looks amazing. I am looking forward to winning it ;)

    -James (male, in case that was not obvious)

  7. Justin Lottig

    My family and I have been travelling the US since August and have been trail running our way around. My twin 6 year olds love the sport and look forward to longer runs with mom and dad someday. Our next stop is Big Bend National Park and where the road ends for us is likely Bend Oregon.

  8. Jen Meador

    I can’t wait to give this book to my road running friends and turn them into my trail sisters!


  9. Irawan Balcet

    We love iRunFar and would loves some prizes!!! Thank you for all your hard work covering races and events from around the world !!!

  10. Denali strabel

    My trail shoes got stolen, speedcross’ do well on mount marathon ;) and currently I am sharing a pack, watch, and other helpful things with my husband soooo….I love my own things (miss having my own things) and I think this would all look great on me for my first ultra coming up :) :) cheers

  11. Mark

    I’ve always referred to RFP as “the bible” of ultra-running books & just recommended it again last night.

    I look forward to this new one & hope to recommend it as well.

  12. Braden Limb

    Relentless Forward Progress was one of the first books I read at the beginning of my running career. I thoroughly enjoyed the insight from veterans in the running community throughout that book and look forward to the information in the new book.

  13. TrailNorth

    Checking this site has become a daily routine, and I appreciate the breadth and depth of coverage of everything from events to unique perspectives and stories. I can’t wait to read this book as well. Thank you all for everything you do!


  14. John Cushma

    Your website is always a great resource for a relative newbie like myself. Congrats on the book – looking forward to having a read very soon.

  15. Ryne Anderson

    Interesting to see so many trail running books hit the market in the past year. I’m sure this one will be top notch, much like Relentless Forward Progress. (male)

  16. GordK

    Looking forward to reading your new book!

    “Today is your day, your mountain is waiting. So get on your way.”

  20. Liz G.

    Female trail runner here. I enjoyed Relentless Forward Progress, refer to it to guide my training and to inspire, and am looking forward to this new read!

  21. Michelle

    Oh my! I’d have to be pretty damn lucky to win all this! With a fabulously supportive running club, great friends and a loving family I half reckon my luck might be exhausted but, with a charity ultra coming up, these would either help or raise some much needed funds for a great charity! Share the love ☺️

  22. Paul Sackles

    Bryan and Megan – Congratulations on putting together your insights and making them available to us all. I look forward to a great read.

  23. Carl Pearson

    What a nice little package to win ready for my first trail race, a short 25k in the beautiful Lake District!!

  24. Luke N

    Looking forward to reading the book! Would love to sport some of this svelte gear that would clearly help me run a six hour 50mile… ;)

  25. Jacob Young

    iRunFar rocks! Thanks Meghan and Bryon for what will sure be a fantastic book, to accompany this fantastic website! Oh, and great contests too!

  26. Jonathan

  27. Eric Kiler

    I can’t wait to read this book. Thanks @irunfar for all you do for the Trail Running Community!

  28. John Strange

    Bryon, I ran with you on a random hot afternoon at Umstead State Park in Raleigh while you were still a lawyer…talked about trail running and your newly formed website irunfar. A few weeks later, you sent me a sticker…which is now up in my garage in Wisconsin…cool to see how irunfar has grown. John Strange

  29. Kirsty Mundell

    Unbelievable prize, my Speedcross have taken me through the Glencoe Mountain Marathon, twice round the Carnethy 5 and many other hill races, due for retirement probably more because of the smell seriously though I am training for my first ultra and this prize would set me up, thank you for the opportunity!!

  30. Roger

    Love the writing at irunfar, looking forward to the reading. Hope the book is well read and well received.

  31. Ward Fremon

    I’m looking forward to reading this book. After reading many articles on this website by the authors, the type of writing utilized will make this a fun read for sure.

  32. Ilene Bloom

    This is all very exciting. As a relatively new person to trail running, I’m constantly inspired! It would be a special treat to try out all of these wonderful items and be able to spread the word. Cheers!

  33. Greg

    If there is no irunfar.com, or RFP and it’s many fans, there would not have been any ultras for me. Thanks for the inights, community, and collaboration. Prize or no prize, I’m long overdue in conveying my thanks for your efforts and knowledge sharing. Congrats on the new book. How could it NOT make a difference?! Can’t wait to read it!

  34. Oskar Henriksson

    Wow! Not sure if the contest is open to foreigners, but i will give it a try anyway. Best of luck with the book from sweden!

My husband and I are traveling to California this May to participate in the Western ststes training runs. I was a late comer to running, I started in my early 40’s so these training runs may be the closest to actually getting to run Western States but who knows? I am still improving. :)

  144. Nick Horvath

    I picked up a copy of Relentless Forward Progress in July 2014, just a few months after completing my first road marathon. I had dreams of completing a trail ultra but was so new and fresh to running and trails that i didn’t know where to even begin. It’s amazing how much confidence that book gave me. In October I completed the StumpJump 50k here in TN. Three months later I completed my first 50 miler and in May 2015, less than a year from picking up that book, I finished my first 100 miler, Thunder Rock 100.
    I know I wouldn’t have done the things I have done or met some of the amazing people I have met without the help of Bryon’s book. It kicked started my passion that drives me in everything I do today. Thank you for what you have done and continue to do for the trail running community.

    Relentless Forward Progress – Was a great resource for me as i stepped up from marathons to trail/ultra’s. Looking forward to getting my hands on the new book.

    Heck of a contest! I’ll have to pick up the book for a refresher before the season starts up again.

    Just moved over to the trails from years of road running. Loving the trails and I’m sure this kit would help with my ultra races lined up this year :)

    I can’t remember if I entered on the correct page. Sorry if duplicate. Sorry for partying.

    Buying the book to help partner build confidence for McDonald Forest 50k in May!

    Bryon, portions of your Relentless Forward Progress book were crucial part of my transition into the ultra distances. Can’t wait to read what you and your collaborators have added in “Where the Road Ends.

    I remember eagerly cracking opening my copy of Don Allison’s book, A Step Beyond: A Definitive Guide to Ultrarunning, almost a decade ago. This looks like another great resource and makes me want to get out and hit the trails.

    Looks like a great guide for runners looking to enter the sport as well as a refresher with enlightening material for those who have spent years on the trails.
