Ellie Rudy '17

Ellie Rudy ’17 has joined the Texas 4000, and is getting ready to bike from Austin to Anchorage, Alaska in 2020 to raise money for cancer research and care!  Though she only began her 18 month training in November of 2018, Ellie has been familiar with the Texas 4000 for years. Her brother-in-law completed the ride back in 2006, and she was waiting at the finish line when her boyfriend, Seamus, finished in 2018.
The Texas 4000 is the longest distance annual charity bike ride in the world, and hundreds of students apply each year. Roughly 75-90 students are accepted, and dedication to the mission and community service are a higher priority than physical fitness or even knowing how to ride a bike.
Ellie was just fitted for her bike, and is ready to start her training! You can read more about her journey by clicking here!
