Ready. Set. Go. Registration for the seventh annual The North Face Endurance Challenge Series, presented by GORE-TEX, is now open for all six events in different locations across the US throughout 2013.

The North Face Endurance Challenge Series, a running event hosted by internationally recognized ultra runner Dean Karnazes, offers up to seven different race distances at each event, from 5K to the ultimate challenge of the GORE-TEX 50 Mile (trail only). Runners of all ages are challenged to compete and push their personal limits on the trail and road. Early registration is encouraged as The North Face Endurance Challenge has sold out in almost all cities, with waiting lists for each distance.

From May through December 2013, six events will be held across the country as part of the Endurance Challenge Series. The first race of the year kicks off in New York, then to Washington, DC, Wisconsin, Georgia and a road event in Missouri in downtown Kansas City. The Endurance Challenge Series will culminate at the Championship event in California where men's and women's top finishes are recognized and rewarded including the coveted grand prize of $10,000 for the GORE-TEX 50 mile finishers.
