Way Too Cool…The Speedgoat Odds are in!

March 5 2008, 3:36 pm

This race will hands down be the most competitive 50k so far this year with at least 4 runners with the ability to go under 3:30 on the rolling singletrack. Ulli Steidl’s record will remain safe at 3:18+, (in my opinion) but the Cool Champion will be close. I predict a 3:24.20 for the men! Read More

Although the winning time was not close to any record, the course came close to the record, wth only 21 official 100 mile finishers. 50 runners chose to bailout with 100k under their belt. Paul’s time of 27:17 Read More
