Hello Friends & Supporters of Army Ranger Lead The Way Fund! 

It is with great pleasure that we are able to announce that we have been selected, for the second year, as a local non-profit partner for the 2014 North Face® Endurance Challenge Series! The event will be held on May 3-4, 2014 at Bear Mountain State Park in Bear Mountain, New York.

Through the generosity of the race organizers we have been granted discounted slots for the Half-Marathon, Marathon, and Marathon Relay (which consists of teams of 2 to 4 people). For you Ultra-Marathoners slots are also available for the 50K and the GORE-TEX 50 Mile races.

The Endurance Challenge Series is a two-day running event and festival that features seven trail racing events and is a hardy test for trail runners of any level. The event, which takes place on the western shores of the Hudson River and through the foothills of the Catskill Mountains, is known as a “tough test of off-road endurance.”


  • Please email racing@leadthewayfund.org with your interest in joining Team Army Ranger by March 15. Please also specify which event you are interested in.
  • Please be advised that all racers MUST commit to meeting minimum Lead The Way Fund fundraising requirements set at $500 for the Marathon and Half- Marathon and $750 for the Marathon Relay Team.
  • All Team Army Ranger participants will be fully supported by Army Ranger Lead The Way Fund and will receive racing gear including a LTWF visor, a LTWF light-weight performance running top and a LTWF gear bag.

If you can’t race for us, we hope you can come out and cheer for our racers during what promises to be an exciting weekend. Army Ranger Lead The Way Fund will have also have a tent set up which will further raise awareness for the work we do on behalf of our U.S. Army Rangers and their families.
