Ultramarathon Daily for Friday June 9

Wanna run Elkhorn 100 this year? Good news…it’s free! There’ll be no course marking and the aid stations will be manned by your crew, but everything else still applies. Sounds like a great opportunity to see some killer trails in Wyoming. More info right this way.

Not to be confused with Bighorn 100...Here’s a great video make by Morgan Schick about his run last year.  If you’re running it this year, watch this video.
