Jason Lester: 2011 HURT 100 Entrant to Run and Speak on Oahu
Halmes Accepts Position at H.U.R.T. 100

The North Face® Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc®

Qualifying-race-2010 For the last couple of years, this logo has been on the HURT 100 site. Starting on Friday, the UTMB kicks off and there is a nice group of U.S. runners this year. On the men's side, Scott Jurek, Geoff Roes, and Karl Meltzer will be running. If you go to the UTMB site, there is a lot of information about the race and it is possible to track runners as well. Also, 2010 HURT 100 winner, Tracy Garneau of Canada is running the race. It should be interesting to see how Tracy and Geoff do coming off their Western States wins. 

The UTMB actually consists of 4 runs of varying distances and our own Nick Kaiser, who I think spends half his year in Europe and the other half here in Hawaii is back for his second year. Nick is running what they call the The North Face® Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc® Courmayeur-Champex-Chamonix - CCC® 2010. 

Get out there and run!

Aloha, Bob

Big Bummer - News is already out that the race is officially canceled.

Tim called from Les Contamines where 400 runners were halted (the rest at
prior check points). He said a race official said the mud was bad but that
the race was actually canceled due to 80 mph winds on Bonhomme. Runners are
being sheltered in a big "hall" to try to keep them warm while awaiting
buses to shuttle them back to Chamonix.

There is some talk of allowing runners to join in on one of the other races
yet to start, but it seems that would be hard to juggle.


There are also some great interviews with some of the participants on www.irunfar.com
