Ultra-Trail Du Mount-Blanc – 2010 1

Registration opens December 23rd for the ultimate trail race!!

It’s time to cross the pond and run the ultimate trail race, Ultra-Trail Du Mount-Blanc. I’ve heard the stories from Meltzer and team mate Mike Mason describing the event, it sounds like my type of course with gnarly endless vertical. 2010 could shape up to be a fun year in Chamonix¬† if the Wasatch Speedgoats can get in the race along with the mystery man?

The Chimera 100K / 100 Miles – Meltzer goes for #6

Old Goat Trail RacesMeltzer off to the Chimera

100 miler as he tries to post his 6th 100 mile win of the season, sick.. Masters runner Speedgoat Meltzer never seems to slow down. Karl posted 6 – 100 mile wins two years ago and I really didn’t think he would try it again. Meltzer mentioned his hooves are sharp and he’s ready to climb the 24,000 vertical for his 7th 100 of the year and maybe 6th win??. Good luck and 10 scrapes!!
