If at first you don’t succeed…
Announced by Gary Gellin, on Thursday, September 27.
The snow hasn’t yet arrived and my health is where it should have been seven weeks ago. All systems are go for another shot at the 165 mile Tahoe Rim Trail speed record. I will start in Tahoe City at 4:30 AM on Sunday, October 7th and hope to complete the loop by 7PM on Monday. Updates will be posted to the ultralive.net/trt165 site along with a feed to Facebook.
The current record is 38hrs, 32 minutes held by Kilian Jornet of Spain.
I will be ably assisted by Bert Keely, Tim Stahler, Victor Ballesteros, and Mike Topper plus loads of caffeine and homemade vegan rice bars.
