Orange Curtain Ultra 50k/100k
By Alan S

http://www.orangecurtainrun.com[/URL]
Barefoot Ted ran the 100k barefoot years ago

Course type
Road 100k/50k and other distance.
Course is a paved bike path with 80% adjacent dirt path.
Very barefoot-able 4.5/5 toes.
Out and back type 10k wash, rinse and REPEAT.

Well I ran a 50k barefoot.

This may be getting out of hand...or just a start.

I ran this last year but I chose the 20k as a fun run to build to my first barefoot marathon (and first marathon) at Orange County Marathon in May 2016. This is a great course for a Personal Best, which I did... of course. This was my second time reaching a 50k distance, my first being a month prior I ran the Avalon benefit 50k in January in Luna Sandals.

Singapore Safari Zoo Run 2017
By Jaqa


Hi All! Just a quick race report on the Singapore Safari Zoo Run 2017!

(Disclaimer: Yes, it's a zoo! I know the arguments. I grew up on a farm in Africa. It's in Singapore so it's definitely not on too tight a budget.)

I grabbed an entry from a friend who could not make it, so was running under the way-cool name of "Orange Lion" He is Dutch! It was a spur of the moment thing as I really could not bother with a 10K race paying ridiculous Singapore prices but is was a bit discounted and sounded fun.

The race is all inside the Singapore Zoo with 1 1/2 laps. The week leading up to it was meant to be a hard training week but I felt really Bleh! and only got one proper hard session in of an 8 x (3' max+3' rest) on the track on Thursday. Friday I had the worst recovery run ever. Had to stop more than 6 times and cut it in half. Feeling really...
