Good recap of the Silverton Challenge…where the shortest distance offered is 24 hours.
Is it OK to drop down a distance after the race starts? My (and your) thoughts here.
Good stuff: Joe Uhan discusses Overtraining Syndrome and why it’s a very real problem. Is this what Geoff Roes has?
…speaking of Roes, Geoff discusses the recent globalization of ultrarunning and how it might affect the sport.
…and speaking of global series…Skyrunning is coming to Australia. Maybe I’m missing something, but what’s all the excitement about Skyrunning? These races already existed, right? Isn’t this just a label on them? Please help.

All I wanted to do was stumble my way to my crew and go back to Chamonix and drink some vin. That was the plan which seamed reasonable, I just needed to get off the mean-ass mountain.
–All that and more from Tim Olson’s UTMB race report.
Ryan Sandes went up to the mountains to reevaluate his running and get his head straight. It worked, and now he’s ready to rock.
This guy was lost in the Andes for four months and lived to tell about it. Wow!
A bunch of hundreds coming up this weekend. Run Rabbit Run in CO, Pine to Palm in OR, Headlands Hundred in San Francisco (I’m running), Plain100 in WA, Hawk Hundred in KS, and Mark Twain Hundred in MO. Have fun out there runners!
