Bighorn 100 – 2011 Snow and Mud?

Sounds like Bighorn 100 could be a snowy muddy mess, I heard rumors the course may change due to heavy snow pack and rain. Five feet of snow at mile 18 aid station? I’ve seen so many races canceled and effected by inclement weather it makes you wonder what’s up with mother nature? Anyways time to strap on my LaSportiva Wildcats, action traction all the way! I used my Wildcats last year at the UTMB mud fest and I was able to bomb the muddy downhills with confidence, while¬† many runners were tip toeing around the mud in their Salomon’s.

Quote from fellow Trail Runner Phil Lowery:

Phillip Lowry I’ve been keeping a spreadsheet of the burgess jct and 9300′ snotels. Today, 46 inches at 7880′, 75 inches at the turnaround. No question the course will be changed.

SCRAPE ON!!!!


Collegiate Peaks Trail Run 1

Off to Buena Vista, Colorado to run a fast 50 miler, 400 runners will line up Colorado’s best Ultra for 2009!

As my season starts out slow due to the heavy snow pack in Utah, I’ll use this race to launch my season which goes off now until October.. Oil Creek 100.¬† The ascents all look runnable with long fast downhills, sounds like a good race to work on leg speed! Look forward to running with Jodie Chase, Chris Boyack and old team mate Tim Long. How could I forget old friend and long time running colleague Todd Salazar.
