North Face Endurance Challenge - Race Entry Giveaway!

Click Here to Register for The North Face Endurance Challenge I'm so excited, I don't know where to start!  Today I have the privilege to offer one lucky reader a FREE RACE ENTRY into the...

Madison, Wisconsin
September 17-18, 2011

With seven race distances - 5k to 50 miles - the Endurance Challenge offers an ideal course for not only elite speedsters, but also those taking their first strides in the world of trail running. Whether you run for the fun, the fitness, or the challenge, the two-day outdoor event offers a great excuse to get their friends and families out to enjoy the spectacular resources in my home state of Wisconsin.

I have always put the Madison area on a high pedestal, calling it the coolest city in the Midwest!  The race is located in the southern reaches of picturesque Kettle Moraine State Park, which I backpacked through during my college years.  A large portion of the course takes place on the renowned Ice Age Trail... Remember, I ran part of the Ice Age Trail back in June <here>.

Check out the video highlight...

To make it even more appealing, you'll be among world-class endurance athletes... like Dean Karnazes himself!!  Karnazes, who recently completed his Run Across America is the host of the North Face® Endurance Challenge and will be at the starting line of each distance and hand out medals at the finish.  He will also lead the Kids' Race each day.  Also confirmed is North Face® Global Athlete Tim Twietmeyer, who will run the highly competitive Gore-Tex 50 mile distance.

Are you completely pumped up for this yet??  OMG, I am!  Unfortunately, with my first marathon the following weekend, I can't compete.  But you can... for FREE... right here!
