A Short Romp Through the Smokies: Nantahala Hilly Half Race Report

As this was my first event after a long, snowy and icy hiatus, I was beyond excited to be able to run again with other people, in an event that would have the requisite local brew AND, as I learned at the end, MARSHMALLOWS and PEANUT BUTTER! What other reasons do you need to run a trail race? Not many, dudes. Not many. Sean Run Bum Blanton, the adventurous, young and hip race director, developed the course so that it would be...

50 Shades of Sore: RD Interview

I have been thinking about how to get more involved with the local ultrarunning community. There are several running groups in my area, but due to kids and other obligations, it was always impossible to make group runs or get involved. When a new race popped up on the horizon, hosted by MLC runners (Misery Loves Company), I signed up right away. Not to run, but to give my time back as a volunteer. On April 12, the first annual 50...

Redemption – Antelope Island Buffalo Run March 21 2014

By Matthew Van Horn On my first attempt to complete the Wasatch Front 100 Mile Endurance Run 2012, I had decided to quit at mile 65. I was walking up the road to the next aid station, where I intended to sit in a chair, get warm, and call my wife to take me home. With the decision to quit, I was no longer moving with a purpose other than to get to where I needed to be to quit. Other racers and their pacers passed me, and I envied...

Red Hot Recap

By Zac Marion Not so hot (for me) Red Hot 55k This years running of the Red Hot 55K/33K was quite competitive and I had many friends who had great days out on the course. My day was not quite as fortunate. I can’t say it was a bad day, but it wasn’t what I was hoping for. To be honest, I don’t know what I expected on the day – I was at least hoping that I would be able to move smoothly and comfortably across the slick rock...
