UTMB and Bootlegger Training Runs

Tomorrow the Ultra-Trail Du Mont-Blanc begins at 9:30 am local (6:30pm Chamonix). Josh Brimhall is running and is number 1543. Updates are going to be posted at You can also track him individually if you either know French (native website language) or know how to use Google Translate to convert the page to English. I'll post updates on the SMUT Facebook as often as I can check. This race is being regarded as by far and away the most competitive ultra ever. 

For us mortals this Saturday we have the Bootlegger 50k training run. I'm still injured so I won't be running, but I'll be out there at 6:30am bringing a cooler if anyone wants to put anything in to have for after their run. 

We all know it has been ridiculously hot lately. There are no water sources on the loop so plan on carrying enough water to get you through the 15.5 mile loop. Another option is to take the Caldera cutoff and you'll be back at the bathrooms at about 8-11 miles depending on the way you come back.

Good luck Josh and hope to see everyone this weekend.
