We humans like stories, and the best ones are told by friends or family at night around the campfire. Though enhanced by the passage of time, the individual or the circumstance of the event create the legend. That person becomes immortal, the myth and the legend can live forever. We all know a legend or two. Ask me about my Grandfather, his survival of world war two was miraculous.
The story behind Legends Never Die, began in 2020. The lockdowns during covid-19 were difficult to deal with. Running became an excellent outlet for recreational therapy!
Legends Never Die is a tough trail run over Half Marathon and Full Marathon distance held on the beautiful single trails near Sun Valley Idaho.
Thomas wanted to create a challenging event with that ideology in mind. He thought anyone can become “a bit of a legend” and wanted to inspire others with the art of movement.
Thomas is a wilderness first responder, passionate trail runner, he has finished multiple Ultra Marathons. Thomas wanted to create an event that he wanted to run. Each year striving to create a better event than the previous year.
