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!!!!
