The North Face 100

Got this email from the Running Lab. Supposed to help publicise it so here goes:

"The North Face 100 is a challenging ultra marathon race that brings the best cross country runners over a variety of terrain, including hardpack, mud, rooted, water crossing, tarmac and park connectors.

Race format will be done in teams of 2, with each of the team member doing their individual 50km run, to add up to a 100km challenge.

You must be an experienced trail runner to attempt this race. There will be several checkpoints along the way but this is a race with minimal support. It’s just you and the environment.

The winner will be automatically entered into The North Face Asia Challenge to be held in Beijing on 19th & 20th October ’08, all expenses paid.
