The original intention of the first Human Potential Movement (1960s/1970s) was to “promote the idea that humans can experience an exceptional quality of life, filled with happiness, creativity and fulfillment when they strive to reach their potential.”(1) Abraham Maslow taught us “that Self-actualization (the fulfillment of self through reaching one’s potential) is the highest expression of a human’s life. “Transcendence is “going beyond the limits of the ordinary experience.”

HPRS races are designed to test your limits as a human being, to ultimately help you break through, and beyond those limits. Take this year and strive to reach your potential by taking on all Six of The Human Potential Running Series’ races. Get six steps closer to self-actualization through crossing all six finish lines. Transcend your limits by accomplishing the extraordinary.

Runners who successfully complete all six of our longest races will receive:
• HPRS Transcendence Series Finishers Jacket
