An unbelievable weekend of endurance is (thank you sweet tiny baby Jesus) in the rearview mirror! Many thanks to everyone who participated — and congratulations to you all. Finisher prizes will be shipped when they arrive (stay tuned) and we wish you a super happy recovery. For those of you who missed UltraMay but want to join us next time (or for another EN event), follow the official Endurance Nation Facebook page.
What: Join us for 48 hours of type-two fun!
When: Friday May 29th @ 8pm EDT to Sunday May 31st @ 5pm EDT!
With so many events and training camps being cancelled, we decided to create an event that would give multisport athletes a chance to connect online and boost their fitness. We created a unique format with “relaxed” rules to make this event as accessible as possible to athletes of all abilities.
The goal here is to challenge your aerobic endurance with micro-doses of training over the course of 48 hours. We’ll do as much of this “together” as possible, using our Zoom account, discord and a Strava group. By the end of the challenge you will have run for 6 hours and biked for 6 hours for a total of 12 hours of activity in a 48 hour window.
Participants will alternate cycling and running for one hour, every four hours, for a total of 12 hours in training. You’ll effectively do the equivalent of an iron-distance race over the course of a weekend. Complete all the sessions to earn a finisher prize!
Since 2007 we have been helping age group athletes achieve their endurance goals through coaching, community and education. Led by Coach Patrick McCrann, 30-time Ironman finisher including 11 Kona Qualifications, TeamEN continues blaze a path forward for athletes in all disciplines from triathlon to ultra running to gravel cycling and unique enduro events.
“Current events have taken a significant personal toll on people across the globe, and athletes are no exception. Being active and fit is an expression of who we are, and finding a safe place to train and connect with our peers is very important. We are super excited to host UltraMay for multisport athletes from around the globe looking to replace a race or training camp. Anyone can join in the fun…the more, the better!”

No, everyone participates on their own.
No, but you need to do a total of 6 x 1 hour bikes and 6 x 1 hour runs.
If you finish the event by completing all the segments, you'll get a finisher prize. If you don't finish all of the segments, we donate your $$ to a great charity!
No. You have four hours to complete each session. So if there's a 4am run, you have until 8am (the start of the next block) to get the run done. Plan wisely!
