Ultramarathon Daily News | Mon, April 11

TWIR: All the trail and ultramarathon results from this past week compiled by Justin Mock at iRunFar. Some international races, some mountain events, and results from Lake Sonoma 50. The post mentions that LS50 was one of the premiere 50 milers in the country–as of just three years ago–and that the competition level has been greatly reduced. What do you think was the main cause? The change of ownership and event changes or the removal of the race from the Golden Ticket list? I hope to see it back on top.
