Vermont 100 – 100 Mile and 100 km Trail Run

The Vermont 100 Mile Trail Run took place over the weekend on the hilly and scenic back roads and trails of the central region of the state. This event is one of the original 100 mile races and offered both a 100 mile and 100 km adventure for trail runners and horse riding enthusiasts. Yes, horses included!

To answer the ever important question on every runners mind, “Will the horses run over me?” The FAQ page says “No.” Always good to hear. :)

The 100 mile course leads runners through nine towns in a three-lobed clover leaf pattern. The 100 km goes through six towns. The route consists of some roots and small rocks with a majority being gravel road so not overly technical. You do get to enjoy 14,000 (100 mile) and 9,000 feet (100 km) of elevation gain.

Results

A total of 265 went after the 100 mile finish and 29 aimed for the 100 km.

Race Reports

  • “As the race date got closer, I got more and more nervous. Five days out from the race, I recall my husband asking “Is it going to be like this all week?” I responded, “It is only going to get worse.”” by Aliza Lapierre (2nd place female) @ I Run Far
  • “Since my quads were still in decent shape I decided to press the pace on the downhills through here to make me feel a little less guilty about walking. When we pulled into Bill’s at Mile 88 my mom told me I had a 15-minute lead. “Whew, a little breathing room.” I said.”" – AJW (First male) @ AJW’s Blog

20 in 24 – Lone Ranger Ultra Marathon – 24 Hour Run

The Lone Ranger Ultra Marathon 24 Hour Run is one of the 20 in 24 events that raises funds to support the non-profit, Back On My Feet. This Philadelphia Pennsylvania event raised over $300,000 from all the events.

How far can you go in 24 hours?

The loop course directs runners along an 8.4 mile paved loop on the scenic Schuylkill River Running loop. Looks nice.

Cool video of one man’s experience. Sounds like it might actually be Brian Jones from Texas! Anyone know…is that Jamie Cleveland going by the camera just after the “gun” went off?
