I am looking forward to making my way to Meeteetse, Wyoming on 8/31 for the 2013 Absaroka Challenge. The race is categorized as “extreme” and I’ll be running the longest version of it at 15K. The race is held in the Absaroka Mountains, near the Wyoming/Montana border. They recommend bringing gloves, it wasn’t until I watched the above video and saw people sliding down the mountain did that recommendation make sense.
All in all, I’m looking forward to how this quick course will challenge me and further develop my trail running experience.
