One of the few races added to the Masochist's Ultra Running Bucket list (the same list that includes The Barkley, Hardrock 100, HURT 100 & other well respected ultra's)

The ultra ULTRA Trail Race.  All ultra runs will seem “cute” after this.  The fact that you even clicked on this page, says that you may not be right in the head.  Welcome home.

Gaining over 9000+ft in elevation, this is an event that will challenge the body & spirit. (50k too far? 22 miler & 11 miler info)
