Happy to finish the race under 20 hours for my second win at Virgil Crest 100 on September 20th 2014.

Yep, those […]

Huge congrats to Jim Blandford with winning in […]

12 hours-long racing drama on the most rugged mountain trails that I’ve ever seen. Catskills Mountains, New York. June 22nd, 2013.     http://www.manitousrevengeultra.com/ Photos by ManitousRevengeUltra, Katherine Varn Hawkins, and Kristina Marie Folcik. Let me start by saying that 50mi is not my favorite distance. I lost my last two 50-milers (in 2012) with pretty solid […]

Massanutten Mountain Trails 100 Mile Race – did 106 miles up and down rocky mountain slopes (missed a turn and had to go some extra distance).  This event should be called an “obstacle course”, not running. Result: 20hr 26 min, good enough for 2nd place overall. Black bears, rattle snakes, and other wild animals on […]
