Due to lotteries, travel plans, and significant training periods required, it seems many folks try to plan their race schedules pretty far in advance, thus the early start to this thread.
Who is shooting for the biggies - Hardrock, Western States, UTMB, Comrades, Spartathlon, Barkley, ...etc, and all the shitload others I'm leaving off? I am certainly not ignoring any lesser-known and/or shorter races, I just didn't have time to type out the names of all 2,000 of them. :)
I've only done ultras in Oregon, there are some nice ones here, and I'm curious what are some good sources for finding some outstanding ultras (50k, 50 miler) known for either the course of the locale. I'm not interested (right now) qualifying for any of the biggies necessarily. Just would like to find some target/destination races in the western U.S. or even abroad to give me something to look forward to during the winter. Triathlon season just ended for me....
