The Desert Solstice 24 hr and 100 mile track meet starts tomorrow. Check out the incredible list of entrants and their accomplishments.  Wish I could be there to watch.

It’s Friday the 13th! Here’s a video of the race walking dead. Cute.

Weekend Calendar

Tallahassee Ultradistance Classic. Paved loops, but looks wicked fast. Check out the CRs that have stood for 30 years.

Yikes, speaking of loops. The Bartrams 100 in Georgia is a 6.25 mile loop repeated sixteen times.

Deception Pass 50k in Washington looks beautiful!

And the Pullman Winter ultra fatass in Washington looks really, really cold. From the site: IMPORTANT: The Pullman Winter Ultra Series is a no-fee, low-key, no-support, slip-on-ice, freeze-your-toes-off, drink-a-beer-afterward-or-during, fun-run-style event.

And Inside Trail’s Woodside Ramble 50k is set in the gorgeous trails near Silicon Valley.
