What is The North Face VECTIV™ Knockout?

It's a knockout elevation leaderboard. Runners are entered into the leaderboard, and every week, the bottom 10% of the leaderboard (organised by total elevation gain), is eliminated.

How does it work?

To qualify, you need to have run:

1500ft+ / 400m+ in 2021

or

25000ft+ / 7500m+ in 2020.

If you make the cut, we'll invite you to join the competitor-only Strava club, where the leaderboard will be tracked.

The leaderboard will reset weekly on Strava, and the total leaderboard will be on our website, updated on Sundays.

When does it happen?

Entry opens on the 26th January 2021, and competition begins when the entry spots are filled.

The leaderboard will open at the start of February, and runs for ten weeks.
