Endurance Challenge: Inaugural Road Event Introduced
As The North Face® Endurance Challenge marks its 5th anniversary, we’re excited to feature a new twist for 2011 - an inaugural road event in Kansas City, MO on August 27-28, 2011! Registration is now open for the exciting Kansas City run, which will start and finish in the beautiful 13.81-acre Frank A. Theis Park in downtown Kansas City. Following a two-day format similar to other Endurance Challenge races, the event will feature a Marathon, Marathon Relay and 50K on Saturday, and a 5K, 10K and Half Marathon on Sunday along Brush Creek River and just a few blocks from The North Face store in Country Club Plaza. We also invite parents to bring their kids for the daily 1K Karno Kid’s Races, led by internationally-recognized ultrarunner and The North Face® athlete, Dean Karnazes.
