Where the Road Ends: A Guide to Trail RunningWe’re only two days into our Where the Road Ends: A Guide to Trail Running launch week and we’re already giving away our third and fourth incredible prize package. Once again, it’ll have a trail runner–new or old–covered from head to toe. Today’s dual men’s and women’s winners will receive amazing prize sets from the likes of The North Face, Ultimate Direction, GU, and Drymax. Don’t worry, we’re not stopping here, as we’ve got in a week’s long series of giveaways. Still, check out today’s contest and enter below!

As we are holding these contests to celebrate the launch of Where the Road Ends perhaps you’ll check out the book. Also, feel free to spread the word about the book however you feel comfortable!

The North Face sqThere’s probably no brand more associated with big mountain peaks than The North Face. It’s iconic in the mountaineering world, but the company’s products are no less performance oriented… or capable on the trails that surround you, no matter where you live. Here are the goods that TNF is bringing to the table… and possibly your closet!

Ultimate Direction SJ Ultra Vest 3.0Of course, if you’re running to some far off summit… or going for a solid trail run around your local park you may want to carry some fluids, food, or gear. It’s a good thing that Ultimate Direction has you covered. One lucky lady will win the women’s specific, newly redesigned Ultra Vesta pack along with a Handy 20 handheld water bottle. On the men’s side, the winner will received the newly launched Scott Jurek Ultra Vest 3.0, a pack that’s great for both racing and long adventures, as well as the Fastdraw 20, another solid handheld waterbottle solution.

GU EnergyIn my minds, GU is the original energy gel… it’s certainly the first gel I had. In the decade-plus since then, I’ve had many 100s more GUs and it’s still a big part of my fueling mix now. Today’s two lucky winners will get to experiment with fueling with their own boxes of GU Energy Gel, GU Energy Chews, and GU Hydration Drink Mix. Update: GU’s now including a box each of Roctane Energy Gel and Roctane Energy Drink Mix, as well!

Drymax logoDrymax is a fixture in the trail running community and on the trails. We’re psyched to give away another two pairs each of Drymax’s Lite TrailTrail, and the new Max Pro Trail to both of this contest’s winners!

How to Enter


To enter, all you need to do us leave a comment before 11:59 p.m. MDT on Tuesday, April 19th. Please make sure to include your email address in the comment form, so we can get in touch with you if you win! (We’ll only use these email addresses to contact the winners of this contest and never for other purposes.)

Since we’re offer one prize pack each to a woman and man, it’d be great to include either your name (if it’s gender-specific) or another indication as to your gender.

Additional Contests

As a reminder, we’ve launched seven separate contests during launch week with almost $12,000 in total prizes!

Winners will be determined in the weeks following the contests’ closure. We’ll notify all winners directly.
