Hey guys, I'm thinking of what I might try next year and I think I might try one of these 100 mile races if training goes well. What races are on the east coast that are worth looking into?
I was there, I just got back actually. What a cool race. Tons of climbing and some sweet singletrack. I"m glad to be off the saddle and to have beaten my goal of 12 hours. I finished in 10 hours 36 minutes and 44 seconds. That's some serious saddle time.
Congrats man. What is the course like? How does it compare to, say, 3 laps of the 50k or 10 laps of the 24HOA? I'd love to try one of these things someday but 100 miles off-road seems pretty freaking daunting. Good job on your time. Next year you'll be banging on the 10 hour door.
That is unreal. Hell of a job man. I was talking to someone about these types of races. I think id do it once, just to say i did it. Crazy!
Lets see I did the 10 laps at allamuchy and that was pretty tough. I'd say easier overall than the 100 cause I got about 4 hours of sleep and some nice breaks while doing all those miles. Technically the 24 would be harder cause it's all singletrack. 3 laps of the 50 would be insane. I'd say much harder than the 101. I think 3 laps of the 50 would have just as much vertical but it would be technical the entire way. The 101 saves you a bit cause there's a bunch of fire roads. Either way any of the 3 is a sweet accomplishment.
Thanks for the feedback. I did a lot of the 50k course yesterday and I said to myself there was no chance on Earth I could possibly have done 3 of those yesterday. Great job again, man!
