Big Bend Ultra!

Here's your chance to run a trail race in Big Bend National Park!  The folks at Friends of Big Bend National Park announced Friday that spaces in their 50K and 25K race, as well as accommodations on the Martin Luther King weekend (the race is Sunday, January 15) are getting slim so act now and enter!  And there's still plenty of room in the 10K too!

This is a WONDERFUL race in beautiful Big Bend National Park, incredible scenery, with well-trained good spirited volunteers, and camaraderie among runners.  We ran the 10K last year and had SUCH A GREAT TIME!
A volunteer on mountain bike awaits the runners' starting gun to fire

To register for the 50K, 25K or 10K, do it online here. (And the race's facebook page is here.) Make your camping or hotel reservations separately, but do both soon!  This is a benefit event for the Friends of Big Bend National Park and the proceeds go to support park far, over their 15 year history, they've donated $1.2 million to the park!  If you're not a runner, consider joining them as a member.  The Friends facebook page is here!)
