Trailstoke ~60km Ultra

An awesome roadtrip to Revelstoke, BC this past weekend to race in the Trailstoke 60km Ultra, “A true mountain race”. And by that they meant a buttload of steep climbing and descending, off-trail travel above treeline and getting hammered by rain and wind all the while. It seems the course was modified at the last minute, maybe to reduce the amount of running at higher elevation because it was so stormy. In the end, I pushed myself incredibly hard, spent very little time at aid stations and covered — whatever the distance ultimately was — much faster than expected. I came in 19th place, 15th in my division, learnt a lot about racing, and was wholly inspired by race organizers, volunteers and racers this weekend.
