The Trail Running Film Festival - Back on Tour for 2024.
UTMB adds a 100M distance to one of their franchised events (one that’s not owned by either Ironman or UTMB but licensed to a third party). The Wixárika race is 91.3 miles with 18044ft of vertical gain.
Wixárika, which means “Deep Hearted Person”, is a race that will take you to the roots of the ancient Mexican and Wixárika heritage. From the top of the mountain through the jungle and to the Ocean. Wixárika is an emblematic course that begins at the Sierra Madre Occidental through the jungle reaching the Pacific Ocean.
The race is only for $220 for international racers (UTMB is offering a discount for locals). I updated the ECC Global Race Series calendar with all the info.
