Quad Rock 50 . . . Almost Sold Out!

Untitled-1Quad Rock 50 on May 12th, 50 Miles with 11,575’ of gain, is almost sold out. For its inaugural year, it is amazing how fast and early it will sell out. As I mentioned earlier, I am really excited about the race. I just started to think about the logistics though, A FIVE AM start? Looks like I am sleeping there.Capture23_thumb[3] I have to run more hills; I haven't done 11,000’ of gain in a day ever, close though.  And its been a while since I ran 11,000’ of gain in a week.  I have some training to do.  It is 3 months away, there is time, but I have to kick it in.

As of February 13th, there were 19 spots left in the 50 mile race and the 25 mile sold out about a month ago.

Needless to say, it is going to be a fun race and an awesome season.

Yeah, I noted the 5:00 AM start, too. That pretty much means Denver-area runners will have to stay the night in FoCo unless they hit the road by about 2:00 AM on Saturday. No thanks. With me starting a new job, I'm going to need to take a pass on Quad Rock this year as it would require me (at least require by my own standards) to take the Friday off or leave early at work to make the race--not a good thing when you're new to a job. I wish the start were more like 7 or 8 AM. I don't mind hitting the road at 4 or 4:30 AM--I do that when I drive up to Leadville for the marathon.
