Oh Ben Blessing, what could be up your sleeve this time?

My desire to put on events that essentially, try and instill a sense of pride in our natural world has resulted in . . . another incredible ultra. Slated for June/July 2014, this tentative route for the Blue Mountains 50 Miler should be another favorite (I changed the name after I realized there was another Northwest ultra with a similar name).  Featuring a hilly roller coaster ridge (at 8K), I will either get a large crowd or a tough crowd.  The 50 miler will feature over 18,000 ft of climb, making it one of the hardest 50s in the world.  This was not the intent, however, but if any of you know, Ben Blessing has a penchant for mountainous races.  There will also be an “easier” 50K and a 15K for the kiddos.  Get your climbin’ legs ready. . .
