Weekend Calendar

  • Ultracentric is under way in Grapevine, Texas. I didn’t realize the race was still going on after the Jurek incident a few years ago.
  • Azalea 24 hour in NE Florida. Two mile asphalt loop that’s beautiful but deceptively tough.
  • Tranquility Trails 50k on the rooty and messy singletrack trails of Alabama.
  • Big Cedar 50/50/100 in Texas.
  • World 100k champs in Qatar. Max, Meghan, Zach (2), Ellie, Mike, Pam, Emily, Larissa… Results will be here and this site will have three cameras set up.  It’s a ridiculously loopy course, so the camera shots will always be interesting.
  • Low Country 50k on a golf course in South Carolina.
  • Duncan Ridge Trail 50k in Georgia. 10k’+ of elevation gain sounds pretty tough.
  • Crooked Road 24 hour ultra on a ~1 mile loop park.
