The North Face Endurance 50 Championship on Saturday turned out to be quite an event. From my perspective, the course was marked and manned perfectly and the RD’s did a great job adapting to less-than-ideal situations. Only thing I would have changed is–because it was a double loop–not having the marathon and the 50k on concurrently. (Why have a marathon and a 50k anyways?)
Big congrats to Miguel Heras and Emilie Forsberg for taking firsts. Is it me or there a giant elephant in the room over on the iRunFar comment section re the mens winner that no one wants to directly address? Interesting how this’ll play out.
Here’s a good pacing report from footfeathers and here’s a good race report from Caitlin Smith (expect her on URP soon!) with many more reports to come.

Why are runners fascinated by losing their toenails? Why don’t we revisit the URP Black Toenail Hall of Fame for a little fun???
