Six down

Posted by & filed under 2018, Recaps, Results.

How is the week almost over … already? The tricky part about ENDURrun week is to live in the moment. 8 days and 160 kms seem (and really are) long, but the reality is that it flies by so fast. Stage 6 is a sneaky one. (Full results). It’s a flat 10k sandwiched between a… Read more »

Historic Stage 5

Posted by & filed under 2018, Recaps, Results.

Not since 2006 has the gold jersey been snatched at Stage 5. But that’s what happened today as Valery Hobson ran a strong personal best in slippery conditions. She picked up enough time on the final three laps to surge into a 7:00 overall lead. Robyn Collins raced for the first time at Chicopee and now finds… Read more »

Except all your friends are here! As ENDURrun 2018 got off to a running start, it was a great mix of old and new. If it ain’t broke… Ditto: For the fourth consecutive year, Stage 1 played out the same: on the men’s side, Rob Brouillette sets a large lead; on the women’s side, a… Read more »

Thank you for another great year! The above photo is the official 2016 Ultimate Finisher group photo. It’s an emotional experience for runners who have become both competitors and friends over the course of the week. But to reach that photo, runners were put through one final test: The Marathon.

2016 Recap – Stage 6

Posted by & filed under 2016, Recaps, Results.

How fast would you run a 10 KM race, the day before a marathon? How fast could you go the day after Stage 5? Stage 6 is only 10 kilometres, but it is tricky. It’s popular for Guests and unpopular among Ultimates for similar reasons; flat and fast can be a bad recipe if you’re… Read more »

2016 Recap – Stage 5

Posted by & filed under 2016, Recaps, Results.

If Stage 3 is a test, Stage 5 is an exam. (Not the final exam; that is Sunday’s marathon.) Today, ENDURrunners enjoyed five supremely challenging loops at the Chicopee Ski & Summer Resort. With gains of approximately 150m per 5.12km loop, today’s heat and humidity also amplified the difficulty of the various terrains including grass,… Read more »

2016 Recap – Stage 3

Posted by & filed under 2016, Recaps, Results.

The third Stage of ENDURrun is its largest yet – a 30 kilometre cross country course. It’s hot. It’s loopy. It challenges runners mentally and physically for six 5 KM laps of grass, woodchip, dirt, gravel and pavement. In the first lap, runners pass an ominous “40 KM” sign: Ultimates have run one-quarter of the week’s… Read more »
