There is so much more to SEASON 5....Read more below!
What is Becoming Ultra anyway?
Becoming Ultra is a project that follows the journey of runners from their frst day of training until the day of their first ultra. We share the journey with our popular podcast and the runners coaches, who you can learn about below. It an epic adventure. Are you ready to apply?
What's new for BU:S5?
Just about every 7 months we launch a new season of BecomingUltra. A podcast and social experience following the journey of a couple runners training for and eventually running their first ultra. Sometimes they find glory on the trails, and sometimes, well, you might need to go back and listen to some past seasons of the show.
Season 5 will be very much like the past seasons. We will choose two runners to be coached by two coaches and will chronicle the journey. Season 5 will also be soooo much different. Explore more of this launch page to learn what all we have in store!
Season 5 is not just for the 2 runners we choose!
A growing Team BU, new coaching concept, and an event we can all train for and run in an amazing location!
