<p>The subject has come up in a couple of other threads, and there seems sufficient interest in a KR Extremies get together. The race that has been suggested is the Tahoe Rim Trail - having just done the 50m, I love the idea.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Options for 50k, 50m, 100m, generous cut offs, it seems the perfect race, and it's not one of those that need a lottery or sells out immediately.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I volunteered last year, and ran the 50m and volunteered this year. The easiest decision I will make is to run it again in 2011. I love the course, it is stunningly scenic, challenging yet manageable.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Who's in?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>ME!!</p>

<p>Hmm - very temping. It won't help with my Ultra in Every State goal. I already have Nevada and California (I'm too lazy to see what side the race is on). It does meet my other two requirements for races: Pretty and Climbing. If I decide to go for another 100, a co-worker has offered a place to crash. My mom is already onboard to crew for me. Remind me when sign up opens.</p>

<p>Just checked...looks like mid-July.  If I don't get into Hardrock, I may do this.  Looks like a nice course.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Is it hot?  Hot races suck for my Scandinavian mountain-boy blood.  :)</p>

Chris, the course is stunning, I loved every minute of it.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I found it cool - a dry heat sort-of-thing.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Seriously, it was something I noticed, there were people who struggled with the heat, it did hit 90 or so. I had no problems, but then again, I prepared for it and iced up at every opportunity. And yes, it was a dry heat.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Don't you have Indiana blood too? Bring the Balvenie! (Jamieson's was OK - but a Doublewood would have been sooo much more enjoyable).</p>

<p>90 degrees (even dry) is hot for my wimpy Colorado blood. My training partner doesn't sweat so we usually try to finish before the temperature gets above 75. I am not what you would call heat acclimatized :)</p>

<br><br><p> It sold out in 13 days this year, then they went to a waitlist. I believe everyone on the waitlist ended up with a spot this year.</p>

<p>See that climb in the elevation profile that starts at 30 miles - this is the view looking down from about 3/4 of the way up<span><img alt="icon_sunny.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_sunny.gif" style="width:27px;height:27px;"></span></p>

<p>An absolutely must -do race!!!</p>
<p>I did the 100 in '07 & it was every bit as scenic & well organised as one could expect.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>That said, I'll be doing Fat Dog the same weekend, so I'm out unfortunately.</p>
