A Dance with Monkeys

    What the hell is wrong with me?

      Really!?!?!?!

       

      I'm a little jealous. (A lot, actually)

       

      I think those monkeys must be messing with your mind or something.


      A Dance with Monkeys

        This is the 50k, on 9/20. There are still slots available... Wink

         

        30 miles. Kinda. 13.5 hours. On the candy ass trails, so it should be easy peasy. Right?

          Does this one include a lot of hunting for random objects like the "full" Barkley?


          A Dance with Monkeys

            Apparently it does not. Apparently there will be honest to goodness aid station out on the course.

              There's a little discussion of this going on in the Trailer Trash (trail runners) forum

              It includes some info from Laz himself (quotes) about the course and how it all came to be.

                Bahahahahahahahaha.

                 

                Trent has finally gone over the edge.

                 

                Oh and good luck. I would take a sat com tel and one of those Rambo survival knives just in case.

                  C-R, this is the easy version. Just 30 miles.

                   

                  Yes, you can have my Upland sours if I don't make it

                    From what I've read of barkely there is no easy version.

                     

                    I'm conflicted.

                      What's the conflict?

                       

                      142 slots taken. 158 remain.

                        Trent's survival or beer.

                        Almost.

                         

                         

                        And hels no I ain't trying that stupidity. Let me finish an easy 50 like Dances with Dirt before I join you in the loony wagon.

                          Dude, it's only 30 miles.

                            A 13.5 hour cutoff time equals walking very slowly so either Laz is a really nice guy who likes people to take their time on the course or it might be tad tough 

                              What the hell is wrong with me?

                               

                              Getting ideas for making The Monkey more difficult? 

                              Upcoming races: 10/12 Victoria Marathon, 12/7 Tucson Marathon, 12/13 Deception Pass 50K, 3/27-28 Umstead 100

                                Just 30 miles?  Okay, I'm in.
