Santa Barbara Nine Trails has all the Coconino Cowboys, Chris Denucci, Coree Woltering, Kris Brown, Desert Solstice winner Jacob Jackson, and more. The ladies are coming ready too with Krissy Moehl, Kate Elliot, Taylor Nowlin, Sandi, Cat, and a whole lot of others ready to race the tough 35 coastal miles. Can’t wait to see everyone take on this distance, especially with Jim’s half marathon fitness.

Cool film shot by Derrick Lytle at Desert Solstice.  Interesting insight from Zach and Pat about how the competitive atmosphere changes when you can see your challengers the entire race. And Sports Illustrates covers the race with an interview with Camille Herron.

Either this trail in the UK is extremely remote or the photographer must’ve photoshopped out other runners. What a gorgeous ridge run! Where is everyone?
