The elite field for the North Face Endurance Challenge Gore-Tex 50-Mile Championship in San Francisco, CA, was recently released and…holy speedskates, it’s a showdown! I’m seriously eating crow from my premature post last month . The prize purse remains one of the biggest in the sport – $10k for first, $4k for second, $1k for third for both men and women. For the men, you’ve got the top 3 finishers from 2012 returning – former winner Miguel Heras, Francois D’Haene, and Cameron Clayton – as well as Sage Canaday, Max King, Dakota Jones, Tim Olson, Rob Krar, Dave Mackey, Hal Koerner, Rickey Gates, Mike Foote, Team inov-8’s Gary Gellin and USATF Trail Marathon Champion Alex Nichols, Jorge Marvilla (with a recent 1:09 finish at the Berkeley Half Marathon), Ryan Sandes, Dave Riddle, Jason Schlarb (5 wins this year!), Mike Wolfe, Michael Wardian, Jason Wolfe, Karl Meltzer, and MORE.
