For the first time, in all of my years of running & racing, I have decided to run a half-marathon trail race. After talking to my more skilled and reputable running friends, I have decided that it’s best for me to change things up, challenge myself, and have fun. The North Face Endurance Challenge couldn’t come at a more perfect time in my 2012 racing calendar, especially given my recent performance at Boston. I’m excited to try something new and add trail races to my running resume (plus, I’ll have an automatic trail half-marathon PR).
Are you interested in running The Northface Endurance Challenge?
Join TNFEC on June 2-3, 2012 at Algonkian State Park (about 20 miles outside of DC). The course keeps runners on their toes with ever-changing terrain – the course consists of 50% singletrack, 30% dirt or gravel doubletrack, 10% gravel carriage road and 10% paved road.
TNFEC takes place over two days and 9 events, including distances from 5K to 50 miler, a marathon relay and two kid runs.
If that doesn’t sound cool enough… Guess who else runs this race (besides yours truly)? Michael Wardian. Yes, he’s a badass!
