We're doing it again in 2010. Special discount registration rate of $75 through 12/31/09.

We just received the news that along with just being a fun 24 hour run, the race is also the 2010 USATF 24 National Championship. ( not AUA like last year, although I haven't quite figured out the difference yet )

Several sponsors have been very generous and there will be a considerable cash award for the top finishers.

Website at http://www.northcoast24.org/ with lots more details.

If I'm healthy enough in 2010, I may give this one a go. Knee issues in 2009 prevented me from running the first one, but it is such an easy drive for me. Thanks for the updates. -cr

I really want to avoid running 2 of these in the same year, so I am going to try and stay away - Not because of the race, just the pain involved with this long of a race.

I expect FANS will have a new champ next year - we'll be rooting for Flounder at the World 24 in May!

Its not in the bad yet. I need to sweat out 1 more race - I would expect there is a good chance David James will make the team in that race and who knows who he will pull along.

But as much as I want to make the team ... I want the strongest team to go and help the US men make a podium appearence.

If it happens, then I will be doing North Coast 24 and Mad City 100k (April) - Good times either way.

Anyone ready to sign up - do it this week and save $25.  After 8/16 the cost goes up to $125. 

 

We're guesstimating getting around 150 total registered this year.  About 40 more than last year.  Most of the National team will be present again to defend their turf.  Plenty of strong challengers signing up as well as folks like me hoping for a personal best far below the elite level.

 

Oldest runner signed up so far is 82.  The youngest is 22.  Some Aussies, Canucks and Brits are coming as well.

I will be there, but not running - I am there to crew a couple of friends.

 

Has the entrant list been updated recently - I see a lot of names missing that I would have expected on the list.

PS

 

Roots or Crunningman ... or any other KRs - Are you going.

 

This is truly the best chance to make the National Team and this year will be tough for Men or Women to qualify in open races other than the US Champ race at North Coast.  Top 3 @ Northcoast and Top 3 open will make up the team.

 

Open qualifying mileage to beat (men)

166

154

151

150

 

Women

136

136

134

133

No - not updated for quite awhile.  A couple names you may be expecting that are on the unpublished list:  Arbona, Geesler, Palmiero-Winters, McCarthy and Piskorska. 

 

I may throw the the most updated list on the race Yahoo group site to hold things over until the website is updated.

It will be fun - Maybe we can get our crew sites set up close together or actually together ... I am hoping to find someone with a shelter to be friends with, I have never sat and crewed for a 24 before.

I will be great to meet you ... we will have to have a KR meet-up for a few minutes before the race, so I can cheer for the KR runners.

I am always amazed at how often many top ultra-runners can race.  I need 8-10 weeks off of training to recover from all "all out" 24 hour race.  After the May 13-14 24 hour race, I just started "Training" again August 2nd.

 

It should be a real interesting race again this year.  They key to the race is patience, which is hard to have when people are lapping you like you are standing still.  John Geesler showed his wisdom last year as he did his thing, nice and easy and steady.  He was mid-pack through 12 hours, then as he ran the same pace, moved up the ladder as the rockets flared out, finally finishing in 2nd place and making yet another USA 24 hour team for Worlds.

We may make you sit out in the open just so you know first-hand what your DW went through for you!

 

See you there Mike!

True dat!  She is too good for me.

 

But I am not as strong as she is, I am a man, weak and frail.
