Ultramarathon Daily News | Mon, Nov 28

Justin Mock runs down all the trail and ultramarathon results from this past week including Cape Town, Dipsea, and more.

Jean Pommier has run the Dipsea trail hundreds of times...here’s his report from last week’s Quad Dipsea.

This guy is into trail running and nudism and wants to combine the two. (Flap, flap, ouch.) And of course Bob Hearn gets a mention.

Unfortunately, it’s time for a friendly reminder about the comments section. Civil discourse is encouraged and comments criticizing my positions and opinions are welcome, but ad hominems including me or involving/invoking my kids will get it deleted. I had to delete some seriously egregious comments over the weekend and it really bummed me out. Thanks.
