If there is one unanimous piece of advice from ENDURrunners that we hear every year, it’s that training for the Ultimate is a long-term and substantial undertaking. That’s why we strongly encourage early entries through heavily discounted earlybird fees to the Ultimate… Read more »

Catching up with Patrick Kelly

Posted by & filed under 2017.

If you don’t know Patrick, he is an exceptional ENDURrunner. Not only does his 11:14:19 Ultimate in 2014 at age 51 rank as the 15th fastest of all time, but all faster times are by men 32 or younger. However, since his life has been turned upside down the last few years, he has looked to… Read more »

As I write this, Sonja is running a marathon – a generally crazy way to cap a 118km week of racing. But she knows exactly what she’s in to, after all, she finished ENDURrun with her husband Kela, way back in 2008. Since then, Sonja Bissegger has kept ENDURrun in the back of her mind… Read more »

How early is too early to start training for 2018?

Posted by & filed under 2017.

Unfortunately for Taylor Kelly, the answer to that question is clear: this is still too early. When Taylor completed the 2016 ENDURrun, she signed up right away for 2017. But training didn’t go as planned this year, and when she sustained a concussion at the end of July, it all but ended her chances of… Read more »
