Not gettin’ it done in Napa…

Posted by relhats in Blog, Race Report on Mar 4, 2012 Napa Valley Marathon

This morning had the makings of the perfect day for a marathon.  The 4:00 AM wake up call was less than pleasant, but I managed to slither out of bed, get ready, and head out the door for the 90 minute drive to the start in Calistoga by 4:30ish.  The weather was perfect, right around 40 degrees with clear skies and no wind.  Stephanie and I got to […]

Weekend Wrap at Inside Trail: Mackey 3-Peats and Slickrock Circus

Posted by relhats in Race Profiles, Race Report on Oct 10, 2011

There was a good assortment of ultra races over the weekend.  From the soft, rolling hills in the Bay Area of California, to undulating and abruptly jagged desert trails in Moab, Utah, to ankle crushing rock-lined, steep descents of Virginia, there was variety in both the race terrain and the weather accompanying the events.  The weather played the biggest role at the Slickrock 100 (50 mile and 50k), […]

Though Inside Trail’s passion lies with off-road competition and adventure, we cannot overlook outstanding performances in our cousin sport, road racing.  First, congratulations to Lizzy Hawker in her jaw-dropping run at the 2011 Commonwealth Mountain and Ultra Distance Running Championships 24 hour race in Llandudno (North Wales).  Just four weeks after winning the grueling UTMB, Lizzy covered 246.4 km (just over 153 miles) in the 24 hours, breaking the […]

2011 Wasatch 100, WMRC and IAU 100K World Championship Results and Wrap

Posted by relhats in Race Profiles, Race Report on Sep 12, 2011

At the Wasatch 100 the weather held with warmer than typical temperatures and Timmy Parr took it out hot himself, running splits that nearly matched Geoff Roes’ course record pace.  Unfortunately, the speedster faded with a sour stomach and low energy, eventually dropping at mile 62.  Evan Honeyfield capitalized on Parr’s falter and made his move.  Eschewing the “Lamb’s Canyon Rule” (leader at Lamb’s doesn’t win the race), […]
