Our 2015 ENDURrun Masters Men's Team

 The ENDURrun is fast approaching!  We had an amazing time last year, but this year is shaping up to be even better.  As many of you know, H+P will have 7 relay teams with various challenges to tackle as they conquer this week-long 7-stage race.  Every Wednesday in July, we will be revealing 1-2 of our teams along with their goals for the event. 

Last week we introduced our Women's team, today we have the team that is aiming to crush them: the H+P Masters Men's team (follow the battle here).


  • The major goal of this Masters team is simple: to win the Women's Team vs. Masters Men's Team challenge.  Follow the battle HERE on our stats page. 
  • As far as we know, this will be the first complete Masters Men's ENDURrun relay team, so they will also be setting the standard for future teams to chase!
