Man this Race Looks Awesome . . . Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc

This was posted on my friend Pere’s Facebook page yesterday:

“Ahir vaig rebre un missatge de l'UTMB, confirmant que la preinscripció que vaig fer l'any passat m'assegura una plaça per l'any 2012.”

Translation from Google: “Yesterday I received a message from UTMB, confirming that the registration I did last year assured me a place in 2012”
Man, I am jealous, the Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc is an epic 106 mile race and deemed to be  one of the toughest in the world.  It crosses through 3 countries, with over 31,800 feet of vertical gain.  It is a bit technical, so they are nice enough to give you a 46 hour cutoff time.    I definitely want to run this some day, but it would be a cheap trip.  I need to win the lottery or move in with me rich cousin like Barefoot Ted did.   Check this race out . . .  How come the leaders are the only ones running?
