Miwok 100K Trail Race: May 7, 2011

The Miwok 100K (62-mile) trail run in the hills of the Marin Headlands (above San Francisco) gets many more entries than they can accommodate. So in order to run it, most of use have to enter a lottery. Well, luck shined upon me yesterday when the lottery results were announced: my entry has been accepted!

Why is Miwok such a popular race? Why am I so eager to run it? Check out this video:


Singletrack - the track for me!

The other reason Miwok gets so much attention is that it attracts the best ultrarunners in the US. The competition up front is so fierce that, to many, it has become a de facto 100K championship race. So while I'm enjoying an amazing day towards the back of the pack, guys like Krupicka, Roes, Wolfe, and Mackey and gals like Crosby-Helms, Moehl, Sproston, and Arbogast will be up front, with ultrarunning fans all over the USA monitoring their progress.
