Why Not?


IRONBULL™ is built around the very simple concept of…WHY NOT?™

In a world of coulda, woulda, shoulda we say WHY NOT?™ IRONBULL™ is all about the lifestyle and attitude associated with giving 100% to everything we do.  We believe that a forward lifestyle with a holistic approach, is the best way to build a better life. We believe that healthy living can be achieved by engaging in an outdoor lifestyle, eating the right foods, and regularly training for personal fitness. When one is conscious and consistent about these few things, they become better prepared for the daily grind which everyone faces.

Have you heard the old saying, “Keep your nose to the grindstone and you will get ahead?” We think that all this will accomplish is to grind off your nose! We believe in a broader approach that involves various contributors to a healthy life, not just one single thing. By challenging oneself, both on and off the course and by pushing oneself to the limit, while giving every ounce of effort, our best performances can be reached!

So…WHY NOT? WHY NOT change your life one day at a time? WHY NOT commit to a goal that someone else (maybe even you) says you can’t achieve? WHY NOT try to conquer something you have never done before? And maybe, just maybe, you’ll do something you never imagined possible. But even if you don’t, you’ll change your life along the way.

A WHY NOT ATTITUDE!  Cancer survivor Keri Anne Connaughty encompasses this “WHY NOT” attitude signing up with two other women for their first adventure race at the Rib Mountain Adventure Race.  “We have so many excuses not to, but ‘WHY NOT’ try something big – what do we have to lose?” 

With preparation, determination, and focus, the inner bull can be channeled. With the IRONBULL™ lifestyle in mind, your inner bull can be released!

IRONBULL™ is a non-profit 501(c)(3) extreme off-road race organization that develops, hosts and sponsors extreme racing venues: ultra-marathons, off-road triathlons, gravel and downhill mountain bike races, adventure races and paddling events.
