At IRun4Ultra our mission is to encourage safe trail and ultrarunning by providing resources and connecting runners around the world in a fun, community environment.
“Whether you finish first and achieve podium or are the last person to finish a race without a minute to spare we at IRun4Ultra believe that every person has a chance to shine” -Linda Sanders
Established by philanthropist Linda Sanders in 2015, IRun4Ultra began as a way to help bring attention to the awareness campaigns of her children’s nonprofit, Hope So Bright. As elite runners from all over the world ran in the biggest and baddest races like Marathon des Sables and Badwater 135 for awareness campaigns and to advocate physical fitness for children, supporters of IRun4Ultra brought it to a life all it’s own.
IRun4Ultra helps athletes of all ages and fitness categories enjoy the sport of running at all levels of experience, talent and involvement. We are a community of runners from around the world who love everything about running. We are trail-runners, ultra-runners, road-runners, and newbies. We support each other by highlighting runner’s accomplishments and acting as a media outlet, publishing articles and photos and encouraging the community to connect with each other on our website and social media pages. No matter what your story, IRun4Ultra embraces everyone who loves running and encourages you to push past your own limits and achieve your goals. All levels of involvement are welcome from our IRun4Ultra team Ambassadors!
In addition to its widespread community of runners and in tandem with the aforementioned children’s nonprofit Hope So Bright, IRun4Ultra also creates advocacy documentaries using the analogy of an ultrarunner’s excruciating experience to showcase the daily struggle of a learning-impaired child and his or her family. More information about our documentaries can be found here.
So if you’re a pavement-pounder, trail junkie, jogger, walker, crawler, or roller; whether you’re a beginner or elite marathoner who is young or old, IRun4Ultra is a safe place to express your love for running, to meet new people, and to push your running limits! Simply put, we are a group of ambassadors who are fun and like-minded who want to focus on what is most important to us – running in the amazing places of the world with our friends and sharing our experiences.
