Ultramarathon Daily News | Mon, Feb 4

Justin/IRF breaks down all the trail and ultramarathon results from this weekend. A few things that stand out:

  • Magda’s win at 9 Dragons. Never a good idea to bet against her if she’s on the start line.
  • Laney at Rocky Raccoon. Nice to see him back on the podium.
  • Frozen Yeti sounds intense…and cold!
  • Tarawera next weekend…check out that lineup!

Ian Corless has some great shots from 9 Dragons right here.

If you heard our interview with Buzz Burrell last month, he mentioned Ultimate Direction had made a hydration vest for kids. We got one and Sunny’s loving it!
Kids gear may not have an immediate ROI, but getting more boys and girls on the trail is a fantastic long term investment.
Thanks UD for thinking of the next generation of trail runners!
