UESCA Endurance Running Conference


2024 UESCA Endurance Running Conference

Taking place at the Antlers Hotel in Colorado Springs, CO, the 2024 Endurance Running Conference will take place Friday through Sunday – September 27 – 29, 2024 (with the option to Add-On Thursday 9/26 – Business of Coaching). This year’s conference builds on the momentum from last year’s ultrarunning coaches-specific conference. The 2024 conference will focus on both road running, as well ultrarunning – as well as an optional day (Thursday) dedicated to the business aspect of coaching.

The conference will be comprised of 26 sessions across the four days. Below are just a few of the sessions that will be offered:

  • Training for 100+ Mile Ultramarathons
  • Training the Gut
  • Athlete Acquisition and Retention
  • Role of AI in Coaching
  • Training for Speed
  • Physiological Testing (live demo)
  • Female Physiology
  • Strength Training (live demo)

The conference will be a combination of single-presenter presentations, panel discussions, Q & A’s and demonstration-based sessions.

Sessions on Thursday (optional add-on), Friday, and Saturday will be sequential. This way, attendees will not have to pick which sessions they want to attend the most and miss the rest. However, on Sunday, there will be two distinct tracks (road running and ultrarunning). Therefore, attendees can choose which track, or mix and match what sessions they want to attend.

As we learned through feedback from last year’s conference, while it’s important to have high-quality learning sessions, it’s equally, if not more important to have engaging social/networking opportunities. Therefore, we will have 20 minutes in between each session to chat with fellow attendees, an evening social, fun run, and lunches where attendees can get to know each other.

  • In-person attendees receive access to all 9/27-9/29 conference session recordings
