Up Next for Where’s Chris Scotch – Wild Duluth 100k October 14, 2010

Posted by whereschrisscotch in Races/Events Schedule.

It has been 9 days since Twin Cities Marathon and I have run once, exactly the same number of times I have been to Dairy Queen.  So I feel well enough rested to get back out there and run!  100km.  62 miles.

As will all the events I have participated in this year, I am running with intention and for a cause I strongly believe in – St. Jude Children’s Hospital. This will be my 13th event in 2010 and 6th Ultra Marathon since July 3.

Wild Duluth Course description by Andy Holak, Race Director:

“The Wild Duluth course follows the high points and ridges above the northern Minnesota city of Duluth. Along the course you will find amazing views over the St. Louis River, harbor and city below, rocky outcroppings, numerous streams, huge White Pines and hidden places you never thought you’d find in a city of over 80,000 people.  The trail will be rugged, hilly and laced with rocks and roots throughout. This course will surely challenge the veteran trail and ultrarunner and will provide inspiration to those new to the sport. Come see it for yourself!”

It’s going to be beautiful!
Enjoy it.

Best of luck! You know what the Superior Hiking Trail’s like… this section’s not much easier than what you’ve done. Haven’t done the race, but hear the hill after the turnaround is a killer and makes wanting to quit half-way the mental challenge. Jeff Allen’s going to be at that turn-around – have him push you back on course if you need it!

Thanks Steve!! Now that I know that hill is there I am looking forward to stomping it, and then will look for Jeff to pick up my burned out carcass!

When will I bump into you next?


PS – have you heard about something called the Barkley? What is that all about anyway?? Sounds fun….:)

(Evil laugh) Bwah-hah-hah!

Barkley? Really. Yeah, I know guys who’re tougher than nails that have been reduced to blubbering gristle at the Barkley. Al Holtz, who ran Leadville 100, Angeles Crest 100, Grand Canyon rim-to-rim-to-rim IN TEN DAYS, then went to Superior 100 the next weekend took 4 tries there to get to 40 miles in under 60 hours.

It’s not a race, more a bunch of guys lost in the woods.
