Surly Trail Loppet 2014
By TD Moose
The weather at race time was beautiful. The temperature was in the high 60's and mostly sunny. It rained a little the night before, but nothing to cause concern for muddy trails. A thin layer of mud over hard ground is one type of surface where I find bare feet have little traction.
This was my second time doing this race. I knew that I could do it, but also knew how tough it would be. For both years I've done this race, it has been near the limit of what I could endure for a barefoot run. I knew the really tough spots, so that helped prepare for them. Basically, I eased up a bit to give myself a rest so that I could run through those sections practically on tiptoe. While that type of stride makes it easier for me to handle really rough surfaces, it takes its toll in terms of energy spent.
I signed up for the second wave...

Mogollon Monster 100M
By John "stjohnthegambler" Yohe
Call me The Mysterious Stranger. After getting laid off my seasonal summer job for the Forest Service, I’m heading north, beginning my long road trip. I pass through Payson, and on up into the small village of Pink just north of there, around dinner time. Outside the Thai restaurant on the left there seems to be a large gathering of people outside on the patio. I think, ‘Hm, that looks like a packet pickup for a race.’
I continue on to a different restaurant and, parking, happen to look up at a banner saying, MOGOLLON MONSTER 100M, Sept. 27-28. Hey, that’s tomorrow! Hey, that was a packet pickup! I’ve heard of this race, too.
So, over dinner and think and think. I actually have a couple of days free until I meet some relatives over in Sedona. I’ve been...
Barefoot runner out to beat his record
The New Zealand Herald
Dental technician Wayne Botha is aiming to reclaim a Guinness Book of Records world title and beat another record today in Auckland.
Botha is the fastest man barefoot in the world over 100km - and he's aiming to better his time. He's also aiming to reclaim the title for the longest distance barefoot in 24 hours.
The 42-year-old North Shore ultra-runner starts his journey at 9am at Mt Smart Stadium while taking part in the annual Sri Chinmoy 24-hour championship.
He wants to smash the 100km barefoot title by around 5.30pm today, and take out the other title by 10am tomorrow, having completed 552 laps of the 400m track. To continue reading, please visit:...
