entries received so far
UltraRunning Magazine provides comprehensive coverage of the sport, while supporting and helping
our readers achieve their own goals and dreams. We want to encourage the growth of ultrarunning while
ensuring that its unique culture of collective effort endures. UltraRunning celebrates the great
achievements and life-changing experiences that are made possible by the extraordinary human effort
required to train for and complete an ultramarathon. We want to hear your story.
UltraRunning Magazine’s sponsor entry spot in the 47th running of the Western States Endurance
Run in June 2020 will be awarded to a reader based on written responses to the following question:
How has an article in UltraRunning Magazine inspired you to contribute to
the sport and/or achieve your goals?
How it Works:
Through November 24th, 2019, contestants will submit their answers in 250 words or less. UR
staff will review all entries. The criteria will be based on the most compelling entries, with an
emphasis on overcoming challenges, fostering the culture of the sport and personal transformations.
Other considerations, but not requirements: the contestant’s willingness to share their story with UR’s
audience. The winner will be announced on Friday, November 29th, 2019.
Sorry, the entry period had ended.
