As if

As if there is not enough ultra/trail running business happening this weekend.  Today’s TransRockies wrap up, Ultra Tour du Mont Blanc (UTMB) in Europe and, most importantly, VHTRC’s largess of runners to tomorrow’s Cascade Crest 100 in Washington State.  Yet, here I am, shamelessly plugging myself.
The September issue of Trail Runner Magazine is out.  First, check out the piece on running in Queenstown, New Zealand.  If you’re up for a running vacation/adventure and you have a little extra cash in your pocket to get you there, do consider Queenstown.  Why?  Read the article to find out, of course.  Second, in the same issue, find out what (and who) makes Charlottesville, Virginia a great place for trail running and racing.
That’s all. Go back to your Twitter updates now on this weekend’s events.

  1. Love the NZ article. Very enjoyable and descriptive write up. I spent a month there backpacking, and the Fjordlands is undoubtedly the most beautiful place I have ever been. The Milford Track, in particular. Maybe we should all move there.

    And if I ever go back, I'm making sure I time it to run the Kepler Challenge.
