This project takes a new approach to the issue of endurance and the meaning that it holds for people. As runners 'hit the wall', or complete distance events without 'hitting the wall', the significance of endurance itself for that runner plays a part in the experience, and in the outcome of those moments. This project addresses the problem of these moments by focusing specifically on women whose philosophical foundations lie in their Christian faith perspective. The project covers three central areas, and uses a henneneutical methodology which enables each of the areas to illuminate the central problem. The areas examined are: Biblical and other theological texts; literary accounts of women's endurance running; and four case studies which are used to ask what Christian women today, who participate in distance running can tell us about the experience of endurance and how it relates to their whole world view.
