Event Description:

You, Dean Karnazes, and a small number of other athletes will run the entire 26.2 mile certified route of a classic marathon course, complete with a rolling road closure, vehicle escort, and aid-station support.

Dean is aiming to complete each marathon in a time of 4:30 to 5:00 hours, which translates into a 10:00 minute to 11:40 minute per mile pace. You must register and start with Dean to participate but, if you need to pull off at any point you may, so long as you understand that you are responsible for your own safety and transportation once you leave the course.

While you can run an “ordinary” marathon any time, there will never be another chance to join Dean Karnazes in The North Face Endurance 50 expedition. Be a part of sports history and sign up today!

Your event entry fee includes: the exclusive opportunity to run with Dean Karnazes in this historic event; pre- and post-race sessions with Dean; on-course support from Cytomax, Nature’s Path, and Niagara Water (2 aid stations and a sag wagon); expenses covering all necessary permits, police escort, attendant staff, and other support; a souvenir package that includes: Limited Edition Endurance 50 shirt provided by The North Face®, one month of training with Carmichael Training Systems (activation fee required), one pair of Sole Custom Footbeds (a $45 value), one signed copy of Dean’s best-selling book, UltraMarathon Man: Confessions of an All-Night Runner; and exclusive promotional offers from Nature’s Path, Cytomax, and Timex.
