Carpenter takes the cash…. 1

Yes sir, one of the best trail runners ever shows up at the North Face Challenge to take the cash, his closet rival Ulli Steidl was unalble to hold off the surging Matt Carpenter who still has the leg speed. I ran Pike’s Peak Marathon the year those two had a show down on Matt’s home turf, guess who won that race??? Congrats to Matt and Kami Semick for taking the prize… 3 scrapes!!

Good to see Kyle still has some competition out there, nice run Karl Meltzer who just finished the AT Adventure!!

Speedgoat 50k

The Speedgoat 50k…2009 version will be held on the 18th of July. One week earlier than last year. I’d like to see more snow on the course! Yah, just kiddin’. The course will be the same as 2008, unless some random circumstance happens. Applications will be available Dec. 1st, 2008, online at Active.com at 7am EST. The cost will be 70 bucks across the board. No early fee, no late fee, but you have to get it in by July 5th, nothing will be accepted after that as the registration page will be pulled. We are limiting the entries to 200 this year, so put us on your calendar and come run the toughest 50k in the US, (and probably the world). Snowbird has a great venue for runners and families alike, great rooms and activities for everyone ages 5-100.
