February 2006

Judy Carliccio takes 1st place Women's Victory

Judy Carluccio who recently moved from Hawaii to New Mexico was the 1st woman finisher and 6th place overall at the WEST TEXAS JACKRABBIT RALLY.

Congratulations Judy! This was a 28.5 mile or 46K run.

Here's a partial quote from what Race Director Mark Dorion wrote on his report to the Ultralist: "Men's winner Skaggs received the prestigious Clifton Cup (named in honor of legendary wild west trail runner Eric Clifton), women's winner Judy Carluccio received the Amalia Cup (named for a fast young cowgirl named Amalia Dorion), and the first over--55 silver Furtaw Cup was won by none other than Frozen Ed Furtaw himself.  We were also honored to have Olympian, former US 6-day record-holder and true gentleman Mike Allen drive down from the hills of Willcox, Arizona to take part."


HURT 100 Participant, Lisa de Speville at the Patagonia Adventure Race

Remember South African, Lisa de Speville? She has been writing about a grueling (read that as sounding really fun to me) adventure race at the southern tip of South America.

The Patagonia Expedition Race covers some of the most remote and unpopulated areas of southern Chile. Click here to read more about this great adventure. 


Barkley Anyone?

Rumors abound, the date is unknown, finishing rates are ridiculously low, wimps and those with huge ego's need not apply. I've heard stories of grizzled, tough, ultra runners being brought to tears and crying for momma.
