50 Miles TRAVESIA EN LAS SIERRAS
By El Yuca Descalzo


June 7 2014


The race was setup for 4 ultra-distances almost at the same 100 and 50 miles and 100 and 50 km, the race started at the 6 am (except for the 50k, it started at 8am), it was a rainy day with a lot of fog in Villa del Carbon, a small town at about 2 hours from Mexico city, around 80 runners were ready at the start line, the race director gave the final instructions and we were good to go!

I was going to run the 50 mile race (80 km, and from this point I will refer only in Km) along with two partners from my training trail team, at this point I’ve only ran a 50 and a 59km ultras in the past months so I decided it was time…

The race was a circuit of 50 km, first you had to run 25K, reach the supply point,...

THIS MUST NOT BE ALLOWED!
By Paul Beales


This is disgraceful! These members of the Oregon Chapter of the BRS have been gallivanting around half-naked, having crazy fun, scantily clad in the silliest of attire, all with no regard for their own sanity or that of any members of the public they might encounter!

This must not be allowed!

We must not allow this one chapter to have all the fun! Come on everybody, take a leaf out of this chapter's book and get your kit off, your scissors, sewing machine and daughter's face painting kit out, and let's show these people that they're not the only ones in this club that know how to have fun!

Mothers Day Classic - Geelong
By Larry


The Mother's Day Classic is an 8km fun run in Geelong (and other locations in Australia on the same day) to raise money for breast cancer research. I've been doing it for a few years now, and this year I decided to run it barefoot for the first time.

My preparation was typically slipshod. I left it until the last possible minute to organise a silly running costume, and ended up buying a pink 'onesie' that I thought would fit - until I tried it on and found that it was a little tight and I looked like I was trying to emphasise certain body parts that are best left to the imagination. Hello boys! My wife thankfully vetoed that idea, and suggested that I try on a pair of her pink flannelette pyjamas. They fit me well enough thanks to her penchant for roomy potato sack couture, and I was on my way....
