Best Day On The Trail Story Competition 2020

Best Day On The Trail Story Competition 2020

As we practice safe social distancing, many of us have had to cancel, cut short or alter our hiking and camping plans for this spring and summer. At CNOC Outdoors, we’ve been daydreaming about getting back on the trail once it is safe to do so. In the meantime, and to help us cope with cabin fever (and homeschooling!), we would love to hear about your Best Day On The Trail during 2019! 

To enter the Best Day On The Trail contest, submit your true story from the trail during 2019 to contact@cnocoutdoors.com until April 19, 2020 with the headline “Best Day On The Trail competition.” We prefer entries with photographs, and please aim for a 500 word limit. If you want to share your story with the world, use #BestDayOnTheTrail.

How to Win

The participants with the stories we deem to be the best (i.e. those that make us most want to get back out on the trail) will be the winners. We will choose three stories from all the entries emailed to us by April 19, 2020 to publish on our blog.

The Prizes 

  1. First prize: a pair of Cnoc Telescopic Trekking Poles with EVA grips.
  2. Second prize: a single Cnoc Telescopic Trekking Pole with EVA grip.
  3. Third prize: a Vecto of the winner’s choosing.

Hydration Horror Stories 2019

Hydration Horror Stories 2019

It's the time of year for ghoulish and ghastly tales of water woe! Last year we asked you to send us the stories of the most disgusting water you've ever had to drink in the backcountry and you did not disappoint us. We got feces-laden cow ponds, dead deer, thick brown sludge, snails, and fortresses of poison ivy. Read the winning stories from last year and the runner-ups.

We're doing it again in 2019. To enter our Hydration Horror Stories contest, submit your true story to digital@cnocoutdoors.com until October 30th with the headline "Hydration Horror Stories competition.” We prefer entries with photographs. Sharing your masterpiece with the world? Use #HydrationHorrorStories. If you submitted a story in the past you are welcome to submit again, but you must submit a different story than the one you previously entered.

How To Win

The participants with the story we deem to be the most horrifying will be the winners. We will choose three stories from all the entries emailed to us by Oct 30th to publish on our blog for Halloween.

The Prizes

  1. First prize: a Vecto of the winner's choosing.
  2. Second Prize: a cold soak bag.
  3. Third prize: a collapsible cup.

Please make sure to read all the terms and conditions in full before submitting.

Two Contests for 2019: Tallest Vecto and Farthest Vecto Competitions

Two Contests for 2019: Tallest Vecto and Farthest Vecto Competitions

Go boldly where no Vecto has gone before.

We're holding a couple contests in 2019: the Tallest Vecto Competition and the Farthest Vecto Competition. For both competitions you must provide photo proof (preferably with geolocation info) of your victory. Contests begin now and will end on December 31, 2019. First prize winner of each contest will receive a $100 Cnoc Outdoors gift card and the second prize winner will receive a $50 gift card.

Farthest Vecto Contest

Who will take the longest trek with the Vecto? Your journey must be done entirely on foot. (If you have a multi-modal portion of your trip, the portions where you are not on foot do not count.) We must be able to see your Vecto in your starting and finishing photo. Tag your social media posts with #farthestvecto.

Tallest Vecto Contest

Who will take their Vecto to the highest altitude? However you get up there, it must be human-powered. We must be able to see your Vecto in your photo from your highest point. Tag your social media posts with #tallestvecto.

See complete rules, terms, and conditions of the contest. Email your entries and story behind your journey to digital@cnocoutdoors.com.
