Scroll down to the bottom of Pisgah page and vote now: right here
The competition is for the Pisgah Mountain Stage Race in North Carolina. The race is five days, 185 miles, and has 40,000 feet of climbing. I've never been down to Pisgah, but it sounds like a super cool place.
The two bloggers with the most votes win a free entry to the race.
