2010 Niagara 50K Ultra

I’ve just registered for this year’s Niagara 50K Ultra, which takes place on June 19. (That’s the day after my birthday, which means I’ll be doing my second ultra as a fresh-faced 62 year old… )

I have two goals for the Niagara this year. The first is to run it barefoot. The second is to improve on last year’s finishing time of 6:19:00. I think both are doable.

The Niagara 50K route is a lovely one – along the Niagara Parkway Trail from Niagara-on-the-Lake to Niagara Falls and back. very scenic and mostly flat (there’s a total ascent/descent of 263 meters, where the trail climbs the Niagara Escarpment at Queenston Heights). It’s all paved and all off-street. Nice!

Now, it would be really nice if it didn’t rain for the whole race, as it did last year. Bring on the heat and the sunshine!
