Winter, trails, darkness, and all the weather.
One last hurrah before the end of the year. Runners, get ready for a fun and festive holiday treat along the trails of Squaxin Park.
Jared Beasley for Ultra Running Magazine:
Running saved Leadville and brought new fire to Chamonix. A big ultra could make a big difference here, too—in the restoration of one of the nation’s most historic routes, and in seeing that it has a future as well as a past. “We have to look back,” says Marshall with a well-earned stoicism. “We have to see where we came from so we can move forward.”
A brand new ultra running experience is coming to Arizona, the Route 66 Ultra run. Marshall and Heather Ulrich created a 140 mile route miles along the history Route 66 from Seligman to Topock66 along Colorado River. The format sounds similar to Badwater, a road race with crew in support vehicles. The race is aimed to achieve a few things: raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Association and the Historic Route 66 Association of Arizona. The price point of $660 is a bit… not sure how to say this kindly… expensive!?
