(View on the Western States 100 trail. Mile 79.)
There are over 20 athletes from the TALON (TX, AR, LA, OK, NM) region heading to test their mind, body, and spirit across the rugged and scenic Western States trail starting from Squaw Valley and finishing on the track in Auburn, California.
Who are the athletes representing our region at the big dance?
After plenty of searching in caves, on the biggest hills in the region, and a bit of kindness and cyber-luck, I have been able to get in contact with a fair number of these athletes. Even cooler, they have been kind enough to answer a few questions.
Over the next couple weeks, I will share these profiles with you so that we can get to know a little bit about our fellow WS-bound ultrarunners.
[update – Here are the short profiles of our Western States athletes as I publish them.]
- New Mexico Trail Runners
- Oklahoma Trail Runner
- Louisiana Trail Runners
- Arkansas Trail Runners
- Texas Trail Runners
