When the race director sank his jeep up to the windows in quicksand along the SlickRock Ultramarathon course, the decision by him and the Search and Rescue personnel to change the course wasn’t exactly hard to make.
Despite spending several hours hiking back out of the wilderness, the organizers behind SlickRock have managed to come up with an alternative course for the 50km, 50mile, and 100mile courses. Stayed tuned tomorrow for a Garmin Map (assuming my 310xt doesn’t freeze from the 6,000 foot altitude) of this year’s course.
Now, off to bed! My 50km Ultramarathon begins in a few hours.
