After posting the change to the 50 miler next year, your response was overwhelmingly in favor of keeping the 100 miler despite the new restrictions on crew access to many of the aid stations. Recent developments have ensured that we’ll be able to manage and improve upon last year’s event. We will be doing away with the 100k but in it’s place adding point to point 50 mile and 50k courses. The event date will be June 14, in order to accomodate another amazing run that we’ll be putting on in May. Registration will open next Tuesday, September 10.
Among other exciting news about upcoming NEW ultrarunning events in the area, I’d like to announce that I’m partnering with Tim Long to work together on all future events. Tim has been doing race management and chip timing for ten years from road 5ks to rugged ultra distances and has been involved in the trail running community in a number of capacities, including charitable races, coaching, clinics, and running clubs. He has personally raced dozens of ultra distance events, including a number of 100 milers, like Zion 100, San Diego 100, Bear 100, Leadville 100, and Hardrock 100. His website is www.footfeathers.com and he produces weekly podcast shows on ultrarunning at www.elevationtrail.com.
