Is Auburn a community that embraces the spirit of endurance sports or one that focuses on top athletes? Certainly, Wendell Robie and Gordon Ainsleigh, our signature endurance events founding fathers, and local heroes, Tim Twietmeyer and Hal Hall, amazing athletes and tireless stewards of these events and the Western States Trails, deserve their due credit. But, the dedication of organizers, the thousands of volunteers and all of the participants are what made Auburn The Endurance Capitol of the World. What attracts endurance athletes to these events and our community is the history, beauty and challenge of the land and trails. For endurance athletes it’s about the endeavor, the adventure, the journey and camaraderie. Anyone who gets to the starting line has “made the cut.” Becky Morris and Rex Maynard, Auburn
