Already this year, he was fourth at the Chuckanut 50k and sixth at Lake Sonoma. Gaffuri was sixth at Tarawera earlier this year, 50 minutes behind Canaday on the shortened 69k course.

He is running the 26km option so that he is rested for the Zegama Marathon in two weeks. Jordi Bes Ginesta , of Spain, who was seventh at Transvulcania in and 50 minutes behind Jones, looks to be running after having to cancel his plans to run Ultra-Trail Mount Fuji due to a cycling accident. Bes Ginesta won the CCC last year. Giuliano Cavallo of Italy was ninth in , a bit more than an hour behind the lead.
Ryan Bak USA is on the elite-runner list but, strangely, not the main entrants list. I think David Laney is racing too? Not sure it's his type of course but the kid's got skillz…. Hey DBo, Laney is racing and is noted above. Will be interesting to see how he fares after Roque de Los Muchachos. Florian could be the big surprise, a big trainer, another marathoner stepping over who can also run the big distances, just depends how he finds the continuous ascent and descent..
Ricky Lightfoot has probably the best chance of finishing in the top 5 of the British runners. We know he can win big races e. Should be a great race again both men and women. To echo what others have said Lightfoot will be up top all day i think- His otter trail was incredible, he crushed a pretty tough course record and he knows how to suffer. Tom Owens has the skill set for sure but its too early, a year off from injury and not forgetting this is still a long way for tom, still only has a handful of races over the 4hr mark- earmark him for podium spot in if he stays with Ultras.
Maybe we throw Kim Collinson in the mix too- recently won fellsman ahead of Jez Bragg but the significance of that in relation to a stacked short ultra remains to be seen…. Lastly is Stu Air running? Thought he was, if so then Ice trail top 10 last year and he has come on heaps since then but last I heard he had a slight niggling injury. I didn't see Vlad on the full entrants list while writing the preview and just double checked and his name still isn't on the list.
Kilian will suffer from the heat, leaving a chance for others.
Utter Endurance: 'Iceman' and 'Ultramarathon Man'
Sage might be tired from Sonoma, and the long downhills drag him down. Dakota, Hernando, and Kilian will duke it out for the win. I'm predicting Dakota — Hernando — Jornet. Should be a great contest and come down to that annoying last uphill after they hit sea level. I love that it's another world class field where there are genuinely several contenders who all could win if they nail it.

But I've got an inkling it'll be Dakota over this distance. Hernando, Sage, Dakota, Timmy, Schlarble. Notify me of followup comments via e-mail. You can also subscribe without commenting. It's supposed to hurt like hell. These were the last comments the coach ever said to Karnazes, who has stated that he lives by these words to this day. In , as a high school freshman at San Clemente High, Karnazes joined the cross country team under Benner Cummings.
Cummings' running theory was that running is about finding your inner peace; his motto was "run with your heart". That season, Karnazes was awarded "Most Inspirational" team member.
Karnazes also ran his first endurance event that year, a fundraising run on a track for underprivileged children, finishing in just under six hours and raising a dollar a lap from his sponsors. While most students ran only 10—15 laps around the track, he ran , a full marathon. Karnazes was not compatible with his high-school track coach, and stopped running for fifteen years. Karnazes has completed a number of endurance events, mostly running events, but also a swimming event.
Most notable achievements include:.

In , Karnazes embarked on the well-publicized Endurance 50 marathons in 50 states in 50 consecutive days. Eight of the 50 races were conventional marathon races. Since marathon races are typically held only on weekends, on the other days Karnazes accompanied by between one and 50 runners ran the course of a marathon in each state using the help of the race director and staff of each event to officially run the certified course, but on a different day than the "live" event. Karnazes overcame the endurance and logistical difficulties of this goal and finished the final marathon, the NYC Marathon, on the official race day in 3 hours and 30 seconds.
He was expected to finish the trip in January However Karnazes chose to end this trek December 15, , in St. Charles, Missouri , to spend more time with his family. The adventure was the primary subject of film director JB Benna 's film entitled UltraMarathon Man: 50 Marathons - 50 States - 50 Days , which was the first feature film about Karnazes.
The film was produced by Journeyfilm, had a national theatrical release in screens in and was released on DVD and Blu-ray in A similar project, undertaken by Sam Thompson to raise money for victims of Hurricane Katrina , was finishing as Karnazes began his project.
Thompson ran 50 marathons all 50 states and D. Karnazes has stated that his next challenge is to run a marathon in every officially recognized country in the world, all within a year. Karnazes said he hopes to undertake the feat in Karnazes' achievements have been derided on some running websites as tainted with hyperbole.
Former elite athlete Weldon Johnson said that the criticism is partly due to Karnazes' ability to attract sponsors and gain attention for feats that may be less spectacular than they appear. Ultra-marathoner John Morelock defended Karnazes, but also said that Karnazes was "very good, not great.
He's not a racer, just a very good performer. Karnazes said that he has come to ignore the criticism in favor of the hundreds of e-mails of people who say that he has inspired them. The "Ultra Marathon Man" episode of Stan Lee's Superhumans documentary television series maintained that Karnazes is able to reduce the build-up of lactic acid over long periods of time. Karnazes also ascribes his endurance feats to an ability to remain under his lactate threshold - his body's ability to clear lactate from his blood and convert it to energy.
In his memoir, Karnazes explains he was twice expelled for attending school while drunk. Karnazes stated that he quit drinking while at Cal Poly , after the death of his sister. He paid for his education by obtaining scholarships and grants, and by working at a campus health center. Karnazes lives in Ross, California. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Dean Karnazes.
