Ultra-Endurance Athletes: What Makes Them Tick? A panel discussion featuring local ultra-endurance athletes will be led by Canyon Keepers founder Jim Ferris. Participants will include the following runners and tri-athletes: Gordy Ainsleigh, Mo Bartley, Tim Tweitmeyer, Meghan Canfield- Laws, Anne Thilges, and “our own” Canyon Keeper and relative newcomer to ultra-running, Manouch Shirvanioun. The panelists will discuss their running backgrounds, philosophies, training techniques and athletic careers. Auburn boasts the title “Endurance Capital of the World”, and not without good reason: there are many talented ultra-athletes in our area, including equestrians, cyclists and runners. This evening focuses on an exemplary sample of the latter. More extensive biographical information on the participants will be posted and available as a handout at the meeting. Join us and learn “What Makes Them Tick.” Light refreshments are served at 5:45 pm. The program begins at 6:15 p.m.
