2014 Ultra Race Calendar (Read 646 times)

     

    Be prepared!  Well run race but very technical!  I had to drop to the 50k because of the time limit.

     

    Duly noted!  It will be a good experience at any rate.

      Superior Trail 50 Mile - September 7th.  I hear this is pretty damn technical/hlly(and actually 52 miles).  I am mostly running this to prepare myself for the even greater hurt of 100 miles so should be interesting with minimal taper.  Big grin

       

      I am also on the wait list for Marquette trail 50 mile August 17th.  Fingers crossed that I can get on that, but I'm number 14 on the wait list.


      I'm back!

        6/1 Rainier to Ruston 50M (50.8)

          6/1 Rainier to Ruston 50M (50.8)

          Last minute decision?

          2014 Goals: Run first trail ultra, first 100K, and see what I can do in a 24-Hour race


          I'm back!

            Been thinking about it for a few weeks, just pulled the trigger. Last year I won the 50K at this race. This year, it's only 50M (and, mostly, 50M relayers).

             

            I don't expect to win the 50M, but it is a little frustrating that with all the relayers, and two start times, I'll have no idea of my position throughout the race.

              Yes, but it will also be satisfying in a weird sort of way to still be passing relayers after running 40+ miles.   Gotta look on the bright side.  Big grin

                 

                September

                9/6 - Superior Sawtooth 100M (RichardC)

                9/6 - Wasatch Front 100 (HoosierDaddy)

                9/7 - Superior Trail 50-mile (flatfooter)

                 

                 

                HD - Wasatch Front - I am jealous.  I've heard the views are amazing.  Not a good choice for my first 100 but maybe someday.  Good luck!

                 

                RichardC - maybe I'll see you at the finish.  I'd say see you at the start but you start a day before me Smile

                  Sorry, I must secretly want to run it twice.  No.  That would be a big fat lie.

                   

                   

                  You were already listed!

                   

                  2013 Goals:  >2,000 miles, 50-miler and 2 marathons  - Goal met PLUS a 50K.  Take that, Cancer.

                    Just found out I got into Marquette trail 50!  Woohoo!


                    I'm back!

                      6/1 Rainier to Ruston 50M (50.8)

                       

                      Blew up big time, worst cramps in years. I had 7:30ish in my mind at the start, around M25 I was thinking sub-7... by M40 I was thinking 9:30. I somehow pulled it together to just squeak in under 8, at 7:59.

                        8/23 - Self-Transcendence Marathon (wcrunner2)

                         

                        This should be my final tune-up before NC 24, so it's another supported training run.

                                Result: 4:53. Happy with the time -- some fast stuff, but lots of technical trail -- but not with placement (22OA, 6AG).
