Two months ago I started training for Transrockies 2015, a three day trail run covering 58 miles and 9,000 elevation gain. Big challenge especially in light of the fact that the longest event I ever participated in was Half Ironman races, the altitude and the fact that I was recently diagnosed with Lung Cancer.
The challenge in typical ultra-marathons like 50 or 100 milers is obviously how to conquer the distance and reach the finish line. Now imagine having to strive for that goal for two or more consecutive days.
That’s basically what multi-day races are and successfully completing one certainly earns you bragging rights. Few tips and advise at Endurance Planet.
