The 2016 Escarpment Trail Run "The 40th Running of the Mountain Goats!"

Today (Sunday the 31st) was the 40th running of the Escarpment 18.6 Mile Trail Run. We had pouring rain and slick conditions, but with the hearty souls that toed the line and the volunteers the braved the conditions, the 40th running of the Escarpment Trail Race was an epic success!

A few weeks ago, I received an email from Rufus Frost asking me if I was interested in being involved in the filming of a FKT attempt on the  18.4 mile Presidential Traverse. They thought the idea of an FKT attempt would be a good fit for a World of Adventure episode on Outside TV, as well as provide good footage for a Subaru ad.

Race Report: Manitou's Revenge Take 3!!! by Mike Siudy

Manitou’s Revenge is the best race in the world for me. Tough terrain, tons of climbing (+/- 16,000 ft) and a long enough distance (54 miles) to be able to go slow and steady. In other words, very little running. After last years time of 13:14, I was excited to see what I could do with very dry trails and the forecasted low humidity.

Quick Recap from the 2016 Manitou's Revenge 54 Mile Ultra

Race day is when you plan for all of your hard work and preparation to come together. It takes a lot of courage and commitment to even get to the starting line of any ultra endurance event. Some days you have the race of your life, while others don’t go quite as planned. This weekend was a perfect example of that.

Race Report: "Smoke Free Rock the Ridge 50" by Lisa Glick

This year I was fortunate to be able to participate in the Rock the Ridge mile Endurance challenge at the Mohonk Preserve. In 2014 this was my first 50 miler. I registered in 2015 but had to defer because of Plantar Fasciitis. It was a long journey for my recovery so the word GRATITUDE can’t even describe my feelings being able to train and participate this year.
