We can't do what we do without the help of every single one of our volunteers. North Face Endurance volunteers provide assistance in just about every aspect of the event to ensure that each participant has a positive and memorable experience.
Launched in 2007, The North Face Endurance Challenge Series committed to pushing runners to their personal limits of endurance, while promoting the sport of ultra-trail running, a sport which is predicated on enjoying physical activity in nature in a safe and responsible manner. The race benefits the following organizations:
The Karno Kids mission is to inspire youth to get outside and become physically active and to restore and preserve the environment for their use and enjoyment.
Leave No Trace is a non-profit organization located in Boulder, Colorado, whose focus is to promote and inspire responsible outdoor recreation through education, research, and partnerships.
The Challenged Athletes Foundation non-profit organization, is a world leader in helping people with physical challenges get involved, and stay involved, in sports.
The North Face Endurance Challenge would not take place without the help of our many hard-working and selfless volunteers. We sincerely appreciate the time, effort and sacrifice from the hundreds of people that help make The North Face Endurance Challenge a series of world-class events.
