Go faster. Go farther. Go beyond.

Go Beyond Racing was formed in 2013, and produces dozens of trail races each year, with new courses always in the works.

You can count on every Go Beyond race to represent our values:

  • Be highly organized with racer safety and satisfaction as top priorities
  • Donate to a worthy beneficiary for each race
  • Have well-stocked aid stations and the friendliest, most supportive volunteers
  • Challenge and reward each participant, including podium awards for men, women, and non-binary racers
  • Put more time, money, and energy than most to reduce, reuse, recycle, and lessen the environmental impact of our events

We welcome everyone at our races and events and are continually doing the work to make this more true. We started the Trail Mix Fund in 2021 as a way to make our races more accessible for BIPOC & LGBTQIA+ runners.

We pushed and worked with Ultrasignup to create the non-binary category and when it was released, we started having equal non-binary podiums and extended that to every one of our races in 2023.

People can register for our races and compete in the category that best fits their identity. We do not require any kind of “proof”.


Read about our cancellation policy, what’s involved with switching distances within a race, and our pregnancy deferral policy.


We have a few rules and requirements for our races that sorta go without saying… but you can and should read them anyway.

Todd Janssen

Todd ran his first marathon when he was 16 and is now focused on longer events. He is a Leadman and was a member of one of the top-ranked adventure racing teams in the U.S. Todd is always looking for new ways to make races more runner-focused and to give people a reason to come back year after year. @gotodd

Renee Janssen

Renee made the progression from road races to triathlons to adventure racing to ultras and is now happiest just running through the woods. A perpetual marketer and event organizer, if Renee’s not on her phone promoting races or looking at maps for new courses, she’s trying to keep up with her twin boys. @go_renee
