In the fall of 2020, founder and runner Seth was diagnosed with end-stage hip arthritis with nearly bone-on-bone contact making everyday life a significant challenge and running nearly impossible. Being a lifelong athlete, this news was devastating for a 34-year-old full of energy with a young family to keep up with. Although the prognosis was clear, and surgery is in the near future, with guidance and support from friends, physicians, and coaches, he entered the 2021 racing season optimistic and determined to run, connect, and support other runners in the community.
The connections made ignited the passion for giving back by launching The Athlos Running Corporation. A non-profit based in Huntersville, NC, that provides support for road and trail ultramarathons.
Independently funded, Athlos aid stations are designed to be a lifeline for runners during ultramarathons. With guidance from physicians, registered dietitians, certified running coaches, and personal trainers, each aid station is geared specifically to address any hurdles a runner might face during a race.
In addition, with partnership from local organizations, Athlos Running has curated an ad-free space to share running knowledge and stories to help runners perform at their best while balancing running with the rest of their lives.
“Why not create a space that cuts through the clutter of ads and pop-ups to simply talk running.” ~ Seth
