‘You’ll never guess who I ran into today…’ (caption contest winners)

Last month, GearJunkie and The North Face challenged readers with a caption contest. We sifted through the hundreds of responses and picked these five winners, each of whom receives gear from The North Face’s “Better Than Naked” apparel and gear line. Bonus: The top winner (Alan Dawson) also receives a free entry into an Endurance Challenge race of his choice! Thanks to all who entered, and stay tuned this month for another contest with The North Face.
