#100happydays Day 52 Planning our next race – The North Face Endurance Challenge

#100happydays Day 52 Planning our next race  – The North Face Endurance Challenge

We are making plans for our next ½ marathon. The North Face Endurance Challenge is next Saturday and Sunday at Blue Mountain. This two day event features an 80k, full marathon and marathon relay on Saturday and a ½ marathon, 10k, 5k and kids race on Sunday.

We are planning on running the ½ marathon. It should be fun. After reviewing the course it looks like we run up the mountain on single track trails, do a little road running and then back on the trails along the top of the ski hills winding back down the hill to the finish. There is a 1700 foot difference in elevation so it should be a lung burner and a lot of fun. A lot of the course will be familiar to us because is includes areas we ran through on the Snowshoe raid last year.

After the race,  The North Face is hosting the Ontario finish line festival in Blue Mountain village with includes a meet and greet with Dean Karnazes. The North Face Global Athlete Team Member, Dean Karnazes, the ultramarathon man, will be answering questions, taking photos and signing autographs. Although Glenis and I will never be in his league, it’s always nice to rub shoulders with the elite!
