Five Races: One Epic Year

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. “ (1) Transcendence is “going beyond the limits of the ordinary experience.” (2)

Take the year and strive to reach your potential by taking on all Five of The Human Potential Race Series races. Reach self-actualization through reaching all five finish lines and transcend your limits by accomplishing the extraordinaire.

Runners who successfully complete all five of our longest races, as official finishers, will receive a very special award.
