Consider Helping Race Staff out or be a Support Crew for a racer

Are you thinking of tackling the Double or Triple ANVIL Triathlon. Have you upped your training which should consist of some overnight training and sleep deprivation. What else might be invovled in a successful finish for you? Think about coming out and helping either the race management OR crew for an athlete.

ES&FM exists to provide insight, education and entertainment into the world of endurance racing. Over the past decade, athletes from all over the world have made a conscious decision to push their bodies and will to the limit but running, swimming, skiing, cycling, and rowing distances that seem impossible. This magazine adheres to both the competitive spirit and the companionship and commeraderie of the endurance racing community; their spirit, motivation and drive, to push one’s body and soul to the outer limits of our capabilities.

Our motto, to paraphrase experienced ultra-distance athlete and author, Wayne Kurtz, is “every athlete has his or her specific goals and reasons for racing in whatever event he or she chooses; but overall most would agree that the journey to the finish line is what resonates in most athletes’ minds.”
