The North Face Endurace Challenge Series – DC Race Deal!!

In less than two weeks I will be embarking on a MAJOR running adventure — 50 MILES of amazing-ness (my first ultra, my first trail race) as part of The North Face Endurance Challenge Series on June 1st.   I am so excited I can’t really believe it!


The race will start and finish in the beautiful Algonkian Regional Park in Sterling, VA and the course will wind its way through the spectacular Great Falls Park and along the Potomac Heritage Trail.  Much of the course is single track trail, with portions of packed dirt and gravel and only a tiny bit of paved road.  There will be incredible views, a fantastic community of people and lots to celebrate along the way.  It is going to be truly full of WOW moments for everyone there.

The North Face Endurance Challenge Series is totally unique and fun, almost like a weekend-long trail running festival with a distance for every type of runner!  On Saturday there will be a 50 Miler, a 50k and a Marathon.  On Sunday runners can do a Half Marathon, a 10k or a 5k.  There are kids runs on both days!  It will be one big awesome ultra and trail running party.

  1. Although I am too far away to win and run I want your readers to know how awesome this race is… I ran the 50K last year and it is still my most memorable trail race to date! Good luck on 50 beautiful miles Jess!

  2. I like both pages on Facebook, but I'm not on Twitter. I would LOVE to win this and run the 10k! I had originally hoped to run a farther distance, but with the pregnancy I think the 10k would be just what I need. Fingers crossed!!!!
