At once, ENDURrun is so many things.
To us, it’s the ultimate test of running in the best possible environment. #thisisENDURrun.
But it’s so much more.
Whether you made a wrong turn, or ran a whole loop extra, and smiled the whole time … This is ENDURrun.
If you entered the race at the last minute … again … This is ENDURrun.
If you finally crossed this off your bucket list after years of anticipation.
If you bowed out to injury, or persevered through injury. That was ENDURrun.
If your entire club came together to deliver so much effort towards a common goal, and totally nailed it.
If you comically undertrained for the race, but did it anyway.
If you bounced back in a big way in 2019! Or you plan an even bigger bounce back in 2020! This is ENDURrun.
You wore that white singlet proudly during the week, and since.
Whether you’ve now completed your 9th ultimate, or just ran your very first marathon …
Whether you set massive PBs or EBs or recent EBs or don’t even know what that is (and don’t care!)
If you gave it your all but came up short, this is ENDURrun.
When you have already signed up for next year, which isn’t crazy, is it? This is ENDURrun.
If this was the highlight of your summer. This is ENDURrun.
If you ran a fundraiser that blew away expectations and made everyone proud. This is ENDURrun.
If you are a trail runner who hates roads, or a road runner who hates trails, or have never run on a track before.
If you had to be back at work Monday matin.
When you finally earned One Tough Runner after so much time and effort.
Whether you won your fifth consecutive title, or don’t even know where to find the results.
If you achieved the Ultimate redemption. This is ENDURrun.
Whether you motivated the community all year long, or showed up to Stage 1 as a brand new face.
Even though it’s kind of strange, if you wore a pink bib on your back. You are ENDURrun.
Sleeping in. Two days in a row!
Participating in the context of immeasurable personal trauma.
The exact moment you knew that everything clicked.
Those hours you spent on the massage table. That was ENDURrun.
If we’ve witnessed your family grow over the years, as our family has also grown.
If you got so little sleep, but it was so worth it.
If you surprised everyone with MASSIVE pbs (everyone, except your dad!)
If you spent way too much time at Lloyd’s house.
Whether this was beyond extraordinary, or just an average mileage week for you.
If your efforts weren’t publicly appreciated, but totally made someone’s week. Thank you. Because this is ENDURrun.
