A few days ago we wrote a post informing readers about a new Gutbuster trail running race in Ladysmith. Today we’d like to focus your attention on another all-new event for 2011 – Rundle’s Revenge.
Disregarding the silly name this looks like one tough two day race which will take place in the Canmore-area on June 26th and 27th, conicidently the same weekend as the aforementioned Ladysmith Gutbuster. However unlike the Gutbuster, Rundle’s Revenge will include two separate disciplines: mountain biking and trail running. The format is as follows: Saturday the 26th is for mountain biking, categories are 50k, 100k or team relay, and Sunday the 27th is for trail running, with categories of 25k, 50k and team relay.
True masochists may consider competing in the Iron Donkey Challenge, which involves competing in both the mountain bike and trail run events on both days (good luck). The Half Donkey combines the 50km bike and the 25km run and the Full Donkey combines the 100km bike and the 50km run. Team Donkey combines the 10-hour bike relay with the 8-hour run relay.
Registration is now open. For more information visit the event’s website at www.rundlesrevenge.com.
