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="">

If you're gonna stick with marathons, you should come east and do the Escarpment Trail Run in July. It's only a measley 30km. <a href="" target="_blank"></a>
Don't let VT interfere with your running of Escarpment. I find VT makes the perfect final pre-Escarpment long run!
7 sisters, man, now there's a ballbuster of a race! Toughest 12 miles I've ever run. I've never kept track of weekly vert, but I do train long, steep climbs on almost every training run I do. If I had to venture a guess, I'd say that lately, I've probably put in around 10,000' a week in each direction (up and down).
Why does this not surprise me....<img alt="notworthy.gif" src="">
