It seems that every time you turn around these days you find out about another extreme race that is more extreme than the last. The Europeans seem to have it all over US for organizing insane events- case in point:<br><br><a href="" target="_blank"></a><br><br>
Has anyone here actually participated in the Marathon des Sables?<br><br>
That's insane. After doing the Grand Canyon double crossing a couple of years ago I decided that marathons were enough. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="">

Although I'm really excited about running the VT 100 this year (my first 100) I do wish is wasn't so close to Escarpment. But perhaps I should follow John's example and run it anyway, at least my buddy jim should be able to beat me this year!<br><br>
A good friend of mine from Scotland ran the Everest marathon this past November, not quite the experience he was hoping for but he can be fussy sometimes. His race report is worth reading even if you aren't contemplating doing that race:<br><br><a href="" target="_blank"></a><br><br>
For the record this friend also came to Maine last year to run the <a href="" target="_blank">Pineland Farms Trail Challenge</a> which he rated as a better experience than Everest. I mention this because I direct that race <img alt="roll_eyes.gif" src="">

Don't worry pithydoug, I don't actually plan on showing up at Escarpment and spoiling your post-race beer.
