Our 2015 Men's A1 ENDURrun Team

The ENDURrun is almost here!  Every Wednesday in July we are introducing 1-2 of our 7 relay teams.  So far we introduced our Women's and Men's Masters team.  Today we introduce a collection of some of our fastest men compromising the Men's A1 Team.  Unfortunately our #2 ranked runner, Brendan Hancock, is out due to a scheduling conflict, but we have still put a fast group together with some big goals:

- The first goal is to take down our team record of 11:16 from our A1 team of last year.  You can follow along HERE on our stats page.  
-Our second goal is simple: to break the 11:04 course record set by the Road Scholars in 2012.  
-Our final goal- in an ideal world we would also love to break 11:00 hours.  Over the years we have found that it's very challenging to have 7 athletes on 7 different days firing on all cylinders and ready to compete at their best.  That being said, if all goes well, sub-11 is within reach, so we're going for it!
