My 2014 Race Schedule

I am so excited to be trying out some new races this year as well as some old favorites. Here is what I'm planning so far:

February 1st: Antelope Canyon 50 Miler
This one is going to be epic. And it's NEXT WEEK! This is the first time a race has ever been permitted to run through Antelope Canyon, definitely one of the most beautiful places in the world.

February 15th: Jackpot Ultra Running Festival 100 Miler
This will be my first short loop race ever. It's a 2 mile loop.....for 100 miles. I can't wait. I'm hoping to earn myself one of these belt buckles:

March 21st: Antelope Island Buffalo Run 100 Miler
I got a PR at this race last year and had a complete blast. I'd highly recommend this for a first 100.

May 17th: Grand Canyon 50 Miler
This is a brand new race and I'm expecting some awesome scenery and beautiful trails.

September 13th: Mid Mountain Marathon
Last year was my first time running this one and it has the best scenery I've ever enjoyed during a marathon. The trails are runable and fun. Can't recommend this one enough.

September 26th: Bear 100????????
There is a little part of me that is thinking about the Bear 100. I'm not sure I'm man enough to tackle this beast yet.

October 4th: St. George Marathon
If I don't run the Bear 100 I'll probably run a double St. George Marathon again.

Yes, it is shaping up to be an AWESOME year of running!!!

  2. I can't wait to see your pictures from the Antelope Canyon run. If the photo you've got up there is anything to go by the scenery is going to be spectacular and you have a great eye for the spectacular.

  9. WAIT JUST ONE MINUTE.

    The Grand Canyon 50??!?!?!??!?! That's the day before my birthday... I had planned on running a marathon ON my birthday, but the Grand Canyon sounds WAY better.

  15. I don't see the Zion's or Bryce 100 on this list. Does that mean you have retired them this year?
