The two most important things you can do increase your chances of finishing the 100 Mile Endurance Challenge are 1) field a good crew and 2) know the course. We have scheduled training runs again this year. We will run all 101.6 miles of the course over four consecutive Saturdays in August. Those who have signed up for the EC50 can run the first two runs. Those running the EC100 should consider running all four segments. If you haven’t read the interview of last year’s winner, Tracy Thomas, please do so. She has lots of great advice!
The route has changed this year. Instead of starting in Corona, we are starting at the headquarters for the 100 Mile Club® in Norco, CA. Besides the beginning, there we have made small improvements throughout the course. So, make sure to review the Course Resources page. Although, we will mark the course on the weekend of the event, it’s best if you know it like the back of your hand before you arrive on race day.
We are using meetup.com again this year to coordinate these runs. If you don’t have an account, it take about two seconds to create one and then RSVP for the runs. There are a limited number of spots, so if you are interested, please don’t delay. Also, there are a lot of additional notes in the postings. Please read them very carefully.
If you have any questions, please contact us.
