El Scorcho Ultramarathon – For You Insomniac Runners

El Scorcho Ultramarathon start time: 12:00………………………….midnight!

This is just one of the crazy things we do down here in Texas to get in a race during the middle of July.

Your choice: 25km or 50km

By looking at the video from this year’s event, there is still plenty of sweating going on and it appears we have a large number of insomniacs in this region.

A new division for next year – Pajama? What do you think?

Have a great weekend.

Be active – Feel the buzz!

    I ran El Scorcho last year – it’s very well organized, and Ryan does a great job putting it together.

    Cool site, and thanks for visiting my blog.

    Mark – Good to hear it is put together well. The number of runners wanting to run at midnight seems to support your opinion.

    Porta-pot – I always seem to find a way to keep you in the ultra scene. 🙂 Now only if I could figure out a way to strengthen your ankles.
