ABOUT BEACON ENDURANCE

Beacon Endurance was created in 2013 as a resource to organize training and racing for athletes in the lower Hudson Valley. We don't consider ourselves to be a competitive club. We workout together, share training and racing advice, and celebrate life well lived!

INCLUSIVE

Core Value

Everyone swims, runs, and rides at different paces and for different reasons. What we share is a passion to get out there!

INFORMATIVE

Core Value

Our members benefit from the wisdom openly shared by our most seasoned members including masters swimmers, elite level cyclists, elite marathoners, and highly experienced triathletes, with experience at all distances.

INSPIRATIONAL

Core Value

It’s harder to skip that workout when you know that your friends are waiting for you. That’s why we plan workouts together, and lean on each other for motivation and encouragement.
