WSGMRT beer sponsor? 4

Well after a long hard search I found a pale ale worthy of the goat tradition, the Scapegoat Pale Ale !! Yes it’s true, the Big Sky Brewing Co. from Missoula, Montana has blessed the over controlled Utah liquor store’s with a killer pale ale.

Next time you are in the west check out the Scapegoat Pale Ale! Three scrapes for Big Sky Brewing Co.!

Take a close look at the map (click to enlarge)! If you make it past the beer carton clockwise on July 12th, you will be a happy goat!

Bighorn 100 weekend 3

The Big Horn weekend is upon us, one of the most beautiful courses I have ever run! Like most high altitude treks they’re all still buried under several feet of snow. The 50 mile turn around point is covered with 3 feet of snow which makes the aid station unreachable, so the course had to be changed! Fellow WS Goats are up there testing their skills on a course that is either muddy  or dried mud full of horse prints that are fairly tricky to run. Good luck Olga and Sandy!

Three scrapes!!


Squaw Peak 50 Miler

Squaw Peak 50 ended up being one of the craziest 50 milers I’ve ever run! The race started out with lot’s of rain as we climbed our first ascent we entered the snow zone! Yes it dumped 2 – 4 inches of snow in the morning then the sun came out and we all got to enjoy the MUD! From the winner on down every one’s time was about an hour slower with all the slip sliding we did. I had the pleasure of running with Jean Coulter who eventually took the lead  as we cruised down windy pass! Nice job Jean, see you at the Speedgoat 50k, the Wasatch 100 warm up!

There was another stellar performance from Master WasatchSpeedGoat Dave Hunt, he really enjoys the big vertical and posted a 5th place finish. Dave gives credit to his pacer and teammate Bryon Powell who was fired up for the task! Three scrapes to the masters winner.

Hardrock is on-Handies Peak ?

Fellow Hardrocker Ted Mahon was skiing Handies Peak on May, 22 and this is what he discovered! All I can say is wow! I showed these to Karl Meltzer and he said “have fun sliding down Virginia’s Pass and Handies Peak! “Maybe I ‘ll take my Dynafit Skis to Grouse Gulch aid station for Handies?? You got to wonder if the firm snow pack will produce a fast time with the smooth ascents and fast descents?

Looks like it’s going to be a fun one!
