Check out this calendar of international MUT events, including a 64 stage, 4,000 km footrace across Europe.

The Tarawera 100k in New Zealand is once again the place to be in March. Check out this killer entrants list.  From the videos I’ve seen (and the one above), it’s a spectacular course, and it’s all managed by a great RD.

Gary Robbins has been training for HURT in the snow, but something tells me it’ll be OK. Gary just joined the Salomon Racing Team…congratulations and good luck!

How not to get eaten by a mountain lion.

Part of the Umstead Trail Marathon course has changed. Would you rather deal with stairs or switchbacks?

What tree-climbing pygmies tell us about foot evolution. Interesting stuff.

I’m assuming Leor is out setting FKTs on the snowshoeing circuit as well. Great pics!

What we should expect in fitness trends in the New Year. I’m assuming the gluten-free athlete with a bitchin’ diet app will open a boutique workout studio solely for Tough Mudder entrants.

Timmy Olson had a great year, and 2013 is looking to be just as incredible. Not sure that’s possible! WS record, your first child, first time RDing…

Roes got enough money together to fully fund two scholarships for his Alaskan running camp. Very, very cool.

Eight weeks ago, this guy was in the hospital and severely atrophied at 50 pounds underweight.  Now he’s climbing Green Mountain.
