With Bighorn just a few weeks away, I'm putting in the final preparations and looking forward to mixing it up with perhaps the deepest field ever for the race. Saturday I was able to put in 50k w/ 6k climb/descent in the Tincup/Black Mountain area with the Taftmaster. The skies were clear (for the first time in weeks) and from the radio and cell phone towers above Alpine we were treated to spectacular views of Pallisades Reservoir and the Tetons. I know I have put in a good long run when I begin to crave a burger and a huckleberry soda. This stuff is truly the nectar of the trail running gods. Another solid week of training, a little taper and it will be time to get wild n' wooly in Northern Wyoming.....I'll bring the soda.
El Vaquero Loco 2014 - Thanks for making this year's race such a success.
11th annual. Saturday, August 8th, 2015. Out and back course on nearly 100% singletrack. Beautiful vistas. Very tough and technical. It has been our experience that you run the 25k if you are not used to running technical trails at altitude.
