Rainier, a head-to-toe kit from Outdoor Research for the trip and getting your mug in our May 2012 issue. Job one: Submit your email address above and complete this five-week training program. Once you're done, we'll let you know when it's time for job two: upload a video demonstrating your toughness-we'll let you know the requirements when the five weeks are up.
