Bucket List of Ultras
Western States 100
Comrades Marathon (89km)
Pikes Peak Marathon
London to Brighton (90km)
Leadville 100 or Hardrock 100
Badwater (solo or real race)
Redwoods Marathon or Avenue of the Giants Marathon
I have other running related dreams that are not specific to a particular race: break 24:00 for a 100 mile trail race, complete the Grand Slam of Ultra Running (not necessarily all in one summer), finish 100 ultras, win a race of any distance (that is not my own), do a stage race (that is not my own), qualify for Boston on a trail marathon course, run every single day for an entire year, hiking/running the full Appalachian Trail (AT), run the Grand Canyon from Rim-Rim-Rim, do a marathon or ultra barefoot...the list goes on...nice to have dreams.
We can all dream big! I will do ONE LOOP (20 miles) of Barkley before I die...or maybe I'll die trying to do one loop. WHAT ARE YOUR DREAM ULTRAS?
Hopefully I'll come back to this post in 20 years and see that I've crossed off many of these dream events.
