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.
Over the weekend a new link and subdomain briefly popped up on the UTMB World website (it has since been removed). But it looked like a website snafu unearthed a potential new UTMB race for the U.S.. People over here have been waiting, longing, shouting for more races where they can acquire their stones and the website might’ve just spilled the beans.
Maybe I am completely off base and the whole thing is just a technical glitch… but the subdomain still exists, albeit goes to an empty page now. So take all this with a grain of salt.
Some sleuthing found the possible event that might become a UTMB race: the Desert RATS Trail Running Festival in Fruita, Colorado on April 14-16, 2023. Registration is currently open on UltraSignup with no mention of any UTMB affiliation.
Perhaps an official announcement is imminent?
