Jez who hails from the UK is one of the sport’s global superstars and is firmly established as one of the top ten elite runners over 100 miles. Last year he finished an amazing fourth place at the Western States 100 in a scorching time of 15:55 and is a previous winner of the infamous Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc (UTMB).
Jez will be vying for top spot against the likes of Ryan Sandes and our local boys next week and its sure to go all the way to the wire. So if you’ve ever wanted to see what it’s like racing at the pointy end of the field and get a flavour for how the elites go about their business, then this is the competition for you.
But… there’s more. North Face will cover your accommodation at the Fairmont for two nights (Friday and Saturday), plus your traveling expenses too – The only slight drawback is that this competition is only open to people from NSW – Sorry those from the other States 🙁 Hopefully we can get some specials for you further down the track.
The North Face will also be providing a whole host of goodies to the winner too, details of which will be confirmed soon.
So how do you enter? Very simple. We want you to reply to us in 25 words or less, why you should crew for Jez. Simple as that.
Jez and the team will then pick the response they like the most, and you’ll be spending your Saturday next week handing out gels and mixing drinks for one of the sport’s elite runners in the magnificent Blue Mountains. But don’t worry if you think you might need a hand. Someone from North Face will also be helping you out on the day and taking you from checkpoint to checkpoint.
Send your entries to Ultra168@hotmail.com and we’ll confirm receipt of your entry when it comes in. If you don’t get a receipt of entry, just give us a shout as we want to make sure we get all the entries for this fantastic prize!
Entries will close at 6pm Tuesday 15th May and the winner announced on the Wednesday morning.
