We condemn the killing of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and many others who have needlessly lost their lives, and lend our voices to the chorus demanding an end to racism and calling for change.
For us, change will first begin at home. Our employees have formed a working group to examine what we must do as an organization to take action. Our goal is to change what we can control in our industry first, with the belief that the effects of that shift will be wide-reaching within the endurance community.
One immediate action we are taking is to host a panel at the Endurance Coaching Summit 2020 on empowering diversity and inclusion in endurance sports and coaching. Together with our coaching community, we can help black athletes and coaches thrive in these sports we all love so much, and start to be the change we want to see.
