      Just put my name in the lottery but seriously doubt I am getting in considering it is my first try.

        Is there a list of applicants available yet?

          My guess is that will not be available until after the drawing but I am not positive.

            I'm in, 3rd try. I think that gives me 8 tickest.


            I'm back!

              I'm tempted. I really don't want to run it next year (I'm all in for Western States, and half considering the slam), but I need to get the ball rolling on tickets. Should have done that a couple years ago, I guess. I understand you can withdraw with 100% money back until June?

                  My name's in the hat.  It's also my 3rd try.

                   

                  Let's hope we all get in.

                    Even though I qualified with Cascade Crest, I've decided it's just not the race for me.  Rather give y'all a better chance!  (Although my preference is that my hubby gets in over you; no offense Big grin)

                    Upcoming races: 7/13 Light at the End of the Tunnel, 8/10 Angels Staircase 35K, 10/12 Victoria Marathon

                    Imminent Catastrophe

                      It's my first year so extremely unlikely but if I actually got selected I don't know what I'd do, it's pretty intimidating.

                       

                      MTA: And I still am in love with Tahoe so want to go back there, it's one week later.

                        Lottery is Dec 8


                        I'm back!

                          Lottery is Dec. 7th, today.

                           

                          Among the winners in the never-started draw:

                           

                          Kilian Jornet

                          Timothy Olson

                           

                          Fortunately, I was not on that list (35 slots, 2,665 tickets). But I should have started this ball rolling sooner.

                           

                          Oh… but now they are drawing for the waitlist.

                            36th on the waitlist. Anyone know if there is any hope?

                              You would need the entire field of  "nevers" to withdraw.  I am on list ahead of you and I have no hope Smile

                              36th on the waitlist. Anyone know if there is any hope?

                                With the 3 pool / 3 wailist thing they have now, they won't got that deep.  I think they went ~8 deep in the Never Started pool last year.  It's become a nearly impossible race to get into (at least quickly).  At least the n^2 ticket system pretty much guarantees you'll eventually get in.  I've got a few friends at 6, 7, and 8 years now...
