We had one glitch this year…..as things happen where a few lead runners took a wrong turn at Sinners Pass.  While the wrong turn was made, the distance is considered a wash as the route they took was .4 miles further than the loop around Mary Ellen Gulch.   There were roughly 6 runners that did a penalty lap down at Pacific Mine.  The runners with the asterisks have a time adjustment of 15 minutes to account for the extra distance they ran.  The penalty lap was on a flat section.  I ran this section to estimate the time deduction…so it’s pretty close.  Things happen…..Any of the runners that ran this penalty lap and are not adjusted, please contact me and I’ll take care of business to make it right.  In terms of prizes, it only affected a few lead runners.

No doubt this will be the toughest “odds” I’ve ever done.  Picking the winners of this great race is certainly gambling.  The heat plays a huge factor.  A few WS rookies up front stand out as big overall favorites, but it’s a long way from Squaw to Auburn, and anything can happen. Some of the fast men and women will drop, that’s a given.  Let’s hope it’s real close at the end..I call it the “Track Meet”, wouldn’t it be cool if the last 300 meters decided the race?  I guess I’m dreaming.  Good Luck to all!! Bear with me as I’m working on my site! This just heard through the grapevine…$2000 TO MALE/FEMALE WHO BREAKS THE FASTEST TIME! Thanks Pearl Izumi for showing the race directors prize money should be handed out with that cool trophy!  What makes this even better, is PI is not even a sponsor….. 1. [...]

One of my favorite 100 milers happens this weekend in Virginia.  The Massanutten 100.  This race is a rocky one and moderately hilly to my standards.  Total climbing in the 18,000′ range.  The course is somewhat different this year, starting at a different location. It should be a real competitive race up front.  Noone reallly sticks out in my mind, but whoever comes out on top, it’ll be close.  My picks: 1.  Todd Walker…..He’s due to win Massanutten, too many times he’s been close. 2.  Dan Barger…..He’s familiar (unfortunately) with 2nd in his last few 100s, I give Todd the nod because of MMT experience. 3.  Sean Andrish…..He could easily sneak away on a good day, he’ll probably lead early. 4.  Harland Peele…..If he’s fresh and ready, he’s my sleeper to win. 5.  Joe Kulak…..He’ll win the race to the keg, but comes up a little short on the win.
