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.
I just ran the 50K race downing Auburn, CA and thought I’d check on the finisher numbers for the various distances for one of American’s biggest trail race events, the Canyons Endurance Runs by UTMB.
Combining results for all distances Canyons saw 1377 finishers and of those 475 were women crossing the finish line. That’s 34% in total. Which overall isn’t horrible, but still skewed by the higher numbers of the shorter distances and seeing that there were only 20 women finishing the 100M it’s clear our sport has a long way to go.
