2024 VIRTUAL ATHLETE (1) (1).png


Each year, about a month before race day, the Survivorfest team hosts a series of live Athlete Seminars for our athletes. The seminars are lead by seasoned athletes and focus on a range of topics from preparing for endurance events, nutrition and race-day strategy, pacing, and many more! 

We invite all members of our community to take part in our seminars, meet their fellow athletes, and immerse themselves in everything Survivorfest! 


If you happen to miss one, you will be able to view each seminar on our Facebook page, or by clicking the links below.

See below for upcoming live seminars! 



Survivorfest is excited to host virtual seminars leading up to our event. Our theme “Dynamic Duos” was chosen to celebrate the incredible camaraderie on the track between athletes, peer to peer training support, and athletes and their coaches. We are so excited about our lineup!
