Gobi Desert Ultramarathon race -250km across the Gobi

The Gobi Desert ultra marathon is held every year in china. Part of the Racing the Planet desert series and each year around 200 runners from around the globe test their mettle against the elements and the landscapes.
This run takes place over 7 days and sees runners racing through a range of terrains from mountains to the feared and burning hot Turpan depression. Through villages to the energy sapping sand dunes.
Lisa Tamati has been running ultra marathons in every corner of the earth for over 20 years. This documentary follows the highs and lows of her race. The battles and obstacles, the cameraderie and the dramas when one of the runners falls victim to the conditions.
Ultra marathon racing is an extreme sport that takes runners of varying abilities to their limits and beyond.

The gruelling conditions, the temperatures the distances, the full weight of bacpacks filled with everything the runners need for an entire week make these challenges brutally hard.

But the athletes are anything but elite. People from all walks of life take on the challenge and give it their all.
The documentary is an emotional journey that gives the viewer a fly on the wall look at the world of extreme sport and what it takes to run the Gobi Desert.

Ultra-Trail® World Tour 2017 - Episode 1 (EN)

Ultra-Trail® World Tour is the series of the most emblematic trail running races of the world.

For this first UTWT Episode of the 2017 season, discover two incredible races: the Vibram Hong Kong 100 Ultramarathon and the Tarawera Ultramarathon in New Zealand.


On August 28, 2015 a small team of Nike athletes went overseas to Chamonix, France to compete in some of the biggest ultra endurance events in the world.

The UTMB® (Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc) is a 170 km/105 mile race circumventing the Alps, crossing into 3 countries with over 33,000 ft of elevation gain.

The CCC® (Chamonix-Courmayeur-Champex) is a 101 km race starting in Courmayeur, Italy and also finishing in Chamonix, France. This race has over 20,000 ft of positive elevation change.

Both events are considering one of the toughest at its respective distances. American men have not typically fared well there. As such, Nike athletes David Laney (UTMB), Tim Tollefson (CCC) and Zach Miller (CCC) set out to prove that American men can compete and compete well in the imposing European mountains.

Toughest Ultra Marathon in Canada: A Runner's Survival Tale - The Fat Dog 100 2012

The Fat Dog 100was on 'my list' for about 3 years. Last year, I had entered, but it was canceled due to massive amounts of snowpack in the higher elevations. I did an easier 'consolation' run, the Canadian Death Race, in its place. But this year, Fat Dog was ON.

It is a 120 mile point-to-point course that is predominately single track - and 'no-track' in one of the most scenic places on earth. And it is possibly the toughest race in North America.

This is the GPS log of the first half of the course from my Garmin 310XT (dead battery after 18.5 hours).

This is the GPS log for the second half of the course. The battery on this Garmin 910 lasted about 19 hours. I missed a very short connecting link between the two. I think the battery died literally at the finish line (or close).



The Squamish 50 miler was my second 50 mile race and boy was it a doozy. 50+ miles, 12,500+ feet of vertical, same for descent, extremely technical, brutal. This course is not easy and took it's toll on my body all day long. I have to give major credit to Gary, the race director, for not just designing one of the most gruelling courses, but making it consistently difficult all the way to the very last mile.

A huge majority of the course is run on beautiful lush singletrack in the Pacific Northwest and it never fails to take your breath away. All day you're dealing with steep ascents (up to 40% grade in some sections), brutally steep and technical descents (there were many times you have to hold on to trees to get down), and a muggy heat that keeps your skin clammy and hot no matter how much cold water you splash on yourselves at aid stations.

While the night after the race I was cursing Gary's name, now a few days later I'm already craving another go at this insane course and can't wait for 2014. Who's joining me?!

I will be doing a full race recap and gear breakdown over at:
