Old school fun in Western Wyoming

The sport of ultra running is growing quickly and you want to get on the train but aren’t quite sure where to start. An experienced coach may just be the right answer. Maybe you are an experienced runner but would like some guidance on how to get started at a new distance-or want to take your game to the mountains. I can help.

My favorite thing about running is that there is something in the sport for everyone, from winning a local fun run, to completing your first 100- (or 200) mile race, and everything in between. I have dedicated my life as both a coach and an athlete to the sport and have the experiences necessary to help you achieve your potential and explore your limits as a runner.

100k, 60k, and 30k

June 3rd, 2017

This is a difficult and beautiful race in the Bannock and Pocatello mountain ranges surrounding Pocatello Idaho. The full course is 100 kilometers long (62.5 miles) with 12,700′ of vertical gain and 12,700′ of vertical loss.  In 2013 there are three different solo race lengths: 100k (62.5 miles), 60km (actually 37.3 miles w/ 8,900′ of gain), and 35 k (actually 21.3 miles w/ 5,100′ of gain).    Note that the full 100k race runs all three legs, the 60km race runs legs 2 and 3, and the 35km race runs  leg 3.

1) 100 km 13,200′ of gain, 13,200′ of loss.
2) 60 km 8,900′ gain, 8,000′ of loss.
3) 35 km 5,500′ gain, 5,250′ of loss.

All SMUT plans are $45.00

35k PLAN

This plan touches on many of the facets of fitness you will need on race day- increasing your speed, strength, and running efficiency will prepare you to attack the hills, both up and down with confidence.

60k PLAN

The 60k plan contains many of the same elements as the 35k plan but focuses on more mileage and longer long runs to provide the added endurance needed to complete the ultra distance in style.

100k PLAN

the SMUT 100k demands that a runner be proficient in all areas of mountain running. Having the fitness to be strong uphill, relaxed downhill, and efficient on the flats will allow you to reach your goal. Double long runs will provide iron quads and iron will on race day.

50k PLAN

The Vaquero 50k is a great way to test your summer fitness and prepare for that fall 100 goal race. The better prepared you are the more you will enjoy the wildflowers.
