The 2015 Ultra Lottery Season – Which Race Will Choose You?

It’s lottery season again in the world of ultrarunning! As our sport continues to grow ( up 345{20b543310651bf6f3679f07daa0e532ca50e05ab066d8bcfc12d35f979f65272} in the last 10 years ), the clash of limited space/permits and high demand has put more races than ever in the lottery game. There’s even the semi-disappointing trend of non-refundable “lottery fees” popping up a few races this year.

Smiling Through The Glorious 2014 Pine to Palm 100m

Last Saturday, I had the great pleasure of joining ~200 ultrarunners for the 5th annual Pine to Palm 100 Mile Endurance Run , an epic and mountainous run in the Siskiyou Mountains near Ashland, OR. Designed and put on by ultra-legend Hal Koerner and the Rogue Valley Runners , the race delivered everything it promised – big heat, big climbs, forest fires, amazing views of endless evergreens, and a world-class support team at every aid station. I was able to find the finish in 26:59, complete with a smile! (P2P Elevation Chart) (P2P Course – to California and back!) The Pine to Palm (P2P) has been on my race bucket list for a few years now, and seemed an ideal Western States/Hardrock/UTMB qualifier with it’s 20,000′ vertical of climbing

Congrats, Lisa Smith-Bachen on Finishing The Badwater Quad

Imagine attempting the original Badwater course, 135+ miles across Death Valley right to the top of Mt. Whitney, and then turning around and doing it backwards.
