The Western States 100 will certainly be a great race to watch.  Put your reading glasses on folks, this one’s gonna take a while.  If I pick em’ even remotely close, it’s all luck, cuz’ it doesn’t get any tougher than this one, and all my research on every runner listed below comes straight off the cuff.  I did not look at any runners results from the past 6 months.  Let’s see how I do this time.   The field is so stacked, creating an actual “odds” is nearly impossible, but here it goes. 1.  Geoff Roes 2-1. He won it last year, ran 15:07, hasn’t lost at 100 miles yet, has beaten everyone below,  and I can bet he feels less pressure as a previous winner than any other previous winner.  His attitude towards racing these things is perfect.  He let’s it evolve and runs his own deal.  He’s got [...]

Yep, there is still 147″ of snow at 9600′ on the Speedgoat course.  That’s alot, runners may be bumping into skiers come race day.  Won’t that be entertaining! The race is now full, but we are accepting those still interested to join the wait list, typically we could have about 35 runners on that wait list, so don’t hesitate to at least put your name on it.  Go to the race page and hit “register” and it’ll bring you to Ultrasignup.   Please, if you can not run the race this year, let me know so I can take you off the list and move another eager mountain goat to join the fun.  If I am notified BEFORE the race, I will roll you over for next year…..but you gotta let me know before race day.    Or you lose. This weekend, I’ll venture over to the San Juan Solstice 50 [...]

Only 3 spots remain for a chance to run the toughest 50k in town.  Only 11,693′ of vertical gain to entertain you.  Some snow, some rocks, some really ugly trail is all we need for a full day’s work.  Expect the course to have some snow, but don’t expect it to change because of it.  Many areas at Snowbird where the snow sits late in the season are not on the route.  With the exception of the “Bookends Climb”, and “Little Cloud Buttslide”, the course should…….and I say “should”, melt out.  If it does not melt out, you’ll be slipping and sliding more, and I’ll be even more entertained with the carnage. Hugs and kisses to First Endurance for sponsoring our event.  Our primary fuel source will consist of First Endurance EFS drink at aid stations,  Red Bull to pump you up, and then close it with a  healthy dose of First Endurance [...]
