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="">

Marathon Des Sables is my dream race but wayyyyyy out of the budget for now. A few people i know are going this year and following their training has been inspirational. Desert RATS is another race i have been interested. A few people i know ran it in 2007 and there were some pretty significant issues they had with the management of the race (like severe lack of water and aid in the middle of the desert when there was supposed to be plentiful aid). I am gonna wait and see how the race goes this year and then decide if i want to do it. It would be a good first step before MdS.
My good friend and running buddy is sending an application into Hardrock. I was actually quite surprised when he told me last week.<br><br>
I am planning to crew/pace at Badwater this summer and get a taste of that infamous race.
can't forget about the Barkley marathons <img alt="biggrin.gif" src=""> one day* i'd like to do one loop <img alt="biggrin.gif" src=""><img alt="biggrin.gif" src=""><img alt="biggrin.gif" src=""><br><br><br><br><br><br>

Hey Pithydog, and everyone else, there is a "multi-quote" function here, where in one reply you can quote and reply to multiple people, just hit the button to the right of the "quote" button on each post you want to reply to, then hit "post reply", it is a very neat function of this message board <img alt="biggrin.gif" src=""><br><br>
And congrats on making it to MILER!!!! <img alt="biggrin.gif" src=""><img alt="biggrin.gif" src="">
