Sometime in late 2019, almost three years ago, I put my name on the list to run the Blackfoot Ultra 25k for the third time.
The race was cancelled in 2020 due to COVID concerns.
The race was cancelled again in 2021 due to COVID restrictions.
But as of April 2022, it looks like the 2022 return of this race is set to race forward.

I woke up at about 530am to get myself prepped.
To be very, very clear: After watching the race live feed for the better part of the weekend, and as I write this 48+ hours later the live feed is STILL going and 3 people are STILL racing, my two laps and 13.5 klicks seems pathetically inadequate. The runners are approaching 330 klicks and 49 hours and three people are still racing.
So, I participated.

Blackfoot Ultra 2020 Cancelled
Received via email:
Slogging through mud and rough terrain, no wonder this race took us over three and a half hours for a short 25 klicks.

It wasn’t actually supposed to happen. While everyone else was signing up for the annual Blackfoot Ultra race back in January, I was contemplating just getting through a tough winter of training. A mini-ultra was not on my radar.
