As a writer and a runner, I have to decide which story to tell when writing a race recap. The reality of running and especially ultra-running is that there is too much that happens over the length of a race to ever write a complete recap of everything that happened, everything that was seen, felt, overcome and learned.
On May 17, 2014, the Extreme North Dakota Spring Primer Adventure Race (END-SPAR) in the in the Pembina Gorge region of Norteast North Dakota took place, and Tara Kenny was there to capture her team's experience.
I've been hearing about the Trans Rockies Run for years as my husband Ross has raced it 4 times. It's been one of my top 10 goals for two years. So after missing the 2012 race to have knee surgery I finally took the plunge and teamed up with Ross this August for the experience of a lifetime.

Within the first few kilometres the Adventure Racing (AR) dominating squad from California, team Tecnu, missed a crucial trail opening. Just under 30 minutes into what is a 24 hours race and things were not looking up for the americans, especially when a team like Pentathlon des Neiges and the navigational prowess of Benoit Letourneau, a two-time winner of the Wilderness Traverse, were not far behind.
The Colorado Trail Race has been a dream of mine ever since I began following it a few years ago. Started only 6 years ago, this self-supported race (no aid stations, no outside help allowed) has grown from a handful of people that first year to more than 80 riders this year.

Scouring the interwebs for some new footage of adventure racing in its rawest form, Breathe finally made this discovery of Aaron Johnson's take on the USARA national championships (actually, one attentive viewer turned us on to it - thanks Garret). Thank's Aaron for the great edit!
