Introducing the Merced Canyon Endurance Runs!

Hello all!

One of the founding goals of Humanity Running was to organize small, local-scale events that would simultaneously bring communities together in a celebration of running and raise funds from the events to benefit local humanitarian and environmental causes.  I'm happy to announce that we are making great strides toward this goal, and our first event is on the calendar!

Please come and join us for the inaugural Merced Canyon Endurance Runs, a pair of trail races (14k and 44k) that will take place in the lower Merced River Canyon outside of Yosemite National Park.  All proceeds from this event will be given to the Upper Merced River Watershed Council to aid with restoration efforts on various trails in the region.  All details can be found on our website and you can register here through our registration host, UltraSignup!

We look forward to seeing you out there!  We are limited to 35 entrants across both events, so come and enjoy our small, low-key atmosphere and some of the most gorgeous foothills terrain in California.  Or come to just hang out with the newts, they're cool too...
