Wasatch Speed Goat Mountain Racing Team 14

This will be new for 2009 but may begin as soon as this summer, I am putting together a killer group of runners who are dedicated to the sport of trail running. These runners will not always be the fastest guys and girls around but long time trail runners who have and are dedicating their life to the sport.

The selection criteria is simple, just run six trail races each season ! You do not have to be on the podium every race but a consistent finisher. You must have at least one 100 miler on your six race schedule!

I will post your bio, race schedules and your race reports!

    Great idea, Scott! Thanks for taking the time together what should be a great team of ultrarunners. While I appreciate almost any company/group sponsoring ultrarunners, I thought that previous attempts bring together regional level ultrarunners (i.e., not the Meltzers, Jureks, Skaggs, etc) resulted in something more than just top athletes wearing a company logo, it resulted in community. I think the community aspect is something that both the late Vasque and Montrail regional teams had. I know I met a lot of really cool people during my single year as part of the Montrail regional team.

    Anyway, best of luck and happy trails,

    Hi Bryon,

    Thank you for the comment and I look forward to chatting with you! I agree, I was with Montrail for 8 years and it was a great ride for a lot of us! My concept is to bring together the runners who really make up the sport, as you mentioned the Meltzers, Skaggs and Jureks have their own agenda as most of us have full time jobs and trail run every chance we can get! I am working with several merchants for this team and I have verbal commitments from some key sponsors. This season will be grass roots but 2009 I hope to have the funnest mountain racing team there is! The size of the team will be determined by the level of participation form the sponsors.

    Three scrapes!! Bahahah

    Fantastic idea ! I’m totally interested. As Bryon can attest to, I’m certainly not close to the fastest, but I’m dedicated and somewhat cool.

    Hi Scott,

    If you’re interested in some east coasters (NC), I’d love to be affiliated with WSPMRT. I just started running ultras last July, but have moved almost exclusively to those distances now, and have a good schedule lined up this year. My blog is footfeathers.com and site is trailevents.com. I’ll represent with a big smile and good attitude (like most trail runners).

    I strongly recommend that you turn the No Follow off in your comment section. I’ll watch Google Webmaster Tools, and if the links don’t show up after a couple of weeks — I won’t go back to that blog again. Another suggestion: you should have a Top Commentator widget installed. Do Follow and Top Commentator will ensure that you have a successful blog with lots of readers!
