Earlier this month, Ultra-Adventures advised me that I will be one of their ambassadors for the Grand Circle Series of Ultra-marathons. When my wife took five seconds to check out the locations, she insisted I run each race in the series.
It’s not often she encourages me to add races to my schedule, so when she did I jumped on it right away. The races for me will be:
UA Grand Circle Trail Ultra Series
Feb 21: Antelope Canyon 55K
Mar 14: Monument Valley 50K
Apr 11: Zion Park 50K
May 16: Grand Canyon 50M
Jun 6: Bryce Canyon 50K
Jul 11: Capital Reef 50M
Aug 1: Tushar’s 39K Skyrunner
It will be a tough and challenging schedule. My goal is to remain injury free, not have the fastest time, and enjoy the journey. With the advent, however, of the 300-mile challenge, I may change those 50 milers into 50K’s… But then add two more races! We shall see….
