Next saturday the Endurance 100 Solo, aka the E100 is on in Park City. Organizer Boris Lyubner’s tagline is ‘mind over mountains’ and promises to deliver ’100 miles of technical, alpine singletrack’ – needless to say this has made be quite enamored with this event and a couple weeks ago I finally decided to sign up. We’ll have to see how my mind deals with the mountains, as it will be my maiden offroad 100-mile race. The course looks great – 90% singletrack, not too much fireroad – but intimidating.
This is how it looks like in Google Earth:
A profile with teeth!
There are 5 ‘stages’, the 100 mile race consists of stages 1, 2, 3 (times two), 4 and 5 (the latter two are in fact also two laps of the same loop). Follow the links to check out the separate trip pages we created for the stages. And here is the overall 100 mile course (embedded map below). There’s also a 50 mile (stages 1, 2, 3) and 100 km event (1, 2, 3 and 4).
Needless to say, you should check out the official website to get all the latest info if you consider signing up. See you in Utah next week if you do!
