Y5, meaning Year 5, is the current year for Live Uncommon, counting each year since our inception back in 2011. Every piece of cool LU gear that you decide to get during Y5, will be labeled with a “Y5”.
Live Uncommon has two event categories:
LU Endorsed events, and events that are LU Creations!
Live Uncommon serves to shine light on and help the good things going on around the community. Each year, we identify certain events to support with the LU Endorsement. All events receiving this LU Endorsement meet this criteria:
All events have been selected based upon their Give Back. They exist to serve a Charity!
All events have a significant LU connection, serving as Race Director, Title Sponsor, or in some other significant contributing capacity.
It is noteworthy that None of the supported events sought out to receive the LU Endorsement. All were sought out and found by LU Crew. All are existing events, created or led by someone already making a difference! The LU Endorsement means that the LU Crew has done the leg-work, the due diligence, and come to the conclusion that these events are bona fide Give Back! We think they’re worthy of your Time, Energy, and Race Entry Fees. And we know that Time and Energy is one of our most valuable assets!
As you know, Live Uncommon’s sole purpose of being is to inspire others, to achieve excellence, to Give Back! So, in addition to the LU Endorsed events, we also have events that are LU Hosted, LU Created, and LU Made! We call these types of events, LU Creations! We hold ourselves to the same standards and criteria that we hold for LU Endorsed events, so you know these LU Creations are worthy of your Time and Energy!
