GearJunkie and The North Face have teamed up to launch the “Gear Up + Get Out Sweepstakes.” Each month we’ll post a chance to win up to $1,000 in gear (from The North Face, of course) through a series of unique contests where creativity and reader submissions can reap big rewards.

Contest No. 2 starts today and has an ultra theme with runner Rory Bosio. By entering below or here you can win some sweet running gear, including a jacket, shorts, pack, arm warmers, and other items from the brand’s “Better Than Naked” line.

Bonus: One winner will also receive Free entry into an Endurance Challenge race of their choice this year. We’ll pick five winners in all and divvy up the prizes and gear.
