Rebecca's Giddy Up Challenge @ Virtual
12:00 am
The Be Good™ Foundation and ultra endurance athlete Rebecca Rusch invite you to ride and run from wherever you are to challenge yourself and help protect the outdoor spaces we all cherish. Globally, we will rack up the elevation in full Everest, 3/4, 1/2 or 1/4 the elevation of Mount Everest (29,032 feet/8,848 meters). Why? To push you further than you thought you could go…Queen of Pain style. AND to raise awareness and funds to support organizations that preserve, protect and honor outdoor natural places and advocate for accessible outdoor experiences for everyone. Ride or run, inside or out, together as part of our global team. Training plans available as well. Leaderboard, prizes and awards included! The Be Good™ Foundation is named for Rebecca’s father, Capt. Stephen A. Rusch, USAF (KIA, Vietnam War). In his letters from the front lines, his watchwords to his young children were always, “Be Good,” and it’s the credo by which Rebecca lives her life. To honor her dad, all veterans, and all who serve and sacrifice in this immensely challenging moment, Memorial Day weekend is a perfect time to dig deep, challenge ourselves for a common cause and “Be Good.”

Sturtevants' Standhope Ultra Challenge
12:00 am
The Standhope 60K/30K is an impressive point to point course through Idaho’s Pioneer Mountains. The higher I get, the higher I get! A very difficult and exceptionally beautiful run through the Pioneer Mountains. Entrants will reach a high point of 11,000′ during the course of the race. Entry should NOT be taken lightly. This race is an excellent trainer for any high-altitude 50 or 100 Miler. Runners will receive a unique award for finishing this event. Our major goal in 2021 is to raise $3,000 for the ARPKD/CHF Alliance. 30K OPTION: This will take place over the last half of the 60K, and is no joke. Please do not sign up for this event unless you are prepared for a long, tough day in the mountains. With an average vertical climb of 325′ per mile and the added challenge of traversing remote terrain this race will challenge even the best athletes. ALL your aid is hiked in. Runners typically take four to six hours to finish this incredible 30 Km race. Much like the Sarlacc from “Return of the Jedi,” you will find a new definition of pain and suffering, only maybe not over the course of 1,000 years.
