This is a photo contest on Instagram hosted by The Grand Traverse.

With the 2019 North Face Grand Traverse Mountain Run & Bike coming up on August 31 and September 1, we’ve decided to celebrate summer and all the hard-work our competitors have been doing to get ready by hosting a giveaway contest. We’re looking for The Ultimate GT Face–your steeliest face of perseverance. Your most exuberant face of joy. Your exhausted face of relief. What does getting out and getting after it look like to you? Show us!

Enter to win by following us and The North Face (@thenorthface) on Instagram. Then, share a photo of your best training face on Instagram and tag us in the photo using @thegrandtraverse and #ultimategtface. We’ll award the winner with an Ultimate Direction running pack AND a pair of Julbo sunglasses, and of course, feature their Ultimate GT face on our feed. 

We’ll accept entries until midnight on Tuesday, August 13, 2019 (11:59 p.m.). Then Wednesday, we’ll post our top 3 entries so YOU can vote. 

You do NOT have to be registered nor have competed in the GT to enter, though of course we encourage you to join us Labor Day weekend for the GT Mountain Run, Bike, or both! This contest is for everyone that loves to get out, get after it, and share in the Type-2 fun that makes The Grand Traverse such an epic, memorable, strangely-addictive event. 

This contest and the GT are not sponsored, endorsed, or administered by or associated with Instagram in any way.
