Best Ultra Trail Running
The SpeedGoat 50K
It takes a certain kind of fanatic to run a 50K (just over 31.7 miles). To trail run that distance and do it climbing over 20,000 combined feet, you have to be part goat. The SpeedGoat is a rigorous yearly trail run that covers the expanse of Snowbird Resort. This race is for berserker trail runners who welcome the challenge of ascending the 11,051-foot summit of Mount Baldy, at the 9-mile mark dropping back down to the roughly 8,000-foot starting elevation and then hoofing it back up to 11,000 feet to the summit of Hidden Peak at the 26-mile mark. The 2011 race is July 30, but if you can’t get in shape in time, it’s not too soon to start sharpening your hooves for the 2012 race.
Wasatch Speed Goat Mountain Racing Team is moving full steam ahead with marquee sponsor La Sportiva Trail Shoes, First Endurance, Backcountry.com and Patagonia Trail Running Apparel!

The man himself continues to raise the bar as he says..finishing the Pony Express Trail with a 105 mile leg in 20:23, what the hell? For us mortals imagine running about 50 miles a day for 39 days and throwing down a 105 leg at the end to just for the fun of it, unbelievable. I talked to Karl this morning before starting his trek back to Utah..he mentioned one day he ran about 23 miles or so stopped played 9 holes of golf and banged out another 27 ..gezzzz. OK, next time I boob to myself at a 100 miler I better think twice, well done Karl,..10 scrapes!
