This was hands-down, one of the most painful races I’ve ever run. As I mentioned in the written recap, this was one of the first races that I’ve taken on that I felt like was trying to physically break me.
Enjoy the part of the video where I think I’ll go for a PB, only to be presented with a solid dose of humility served up by reality (and a single track trail that doubled as a torture device).

The 777 Project
The 777 Project is an endurance, adventure and philanthropic initiative by Joel Runyon & IMPOSSIBLE to run 7 ultra marathons on 7 continents in order to raise money & awareness to build 7 schools with Pencils of Promise and provide opportunities to those for whom a basic education can be impossible.
As of this post, I’ve run 6 ultra marathons on 6 continents and we’ve collectively raised $127,142 – enough to build 5 schools – and counting! You can see previous races recaps + videos below.
I am matching all donations through IMPOSSIBLE through the end of the project. If you’d like to get involved, you can donate here and 2x your donation automatically.
