Hi All! I volunteered last year as personal crew at La Ultra - The High touted as the 'cruelest ultra in the world'. This is a 333 Km run in the Indian Himalayas and includes three passes close to 18,000 feet.
Registrations for the La Ultra for 2015 are open. Please visit La Ultra Site for additional information. From my experience last year, I can tell you that this is a unique running and volunteering experience.
I am also happy to answer any specific queries that you might have.
Eric: I think you should come!
Hope to see some of you in August 2015 at the La Ultra.
Would LOVE to. Trying to plan a run expedition to Himalayas, so stay tuned.
Have an coached athlete really wanting to do this race as his Cool Impossible in a few years.
Are you racing in 2015?
Eric, I am happy to
Lori, you might want to consider crewing in 2015 and running in a later edition. I feel that it will really help you prep for a run if you experience it as crew. Happy to provide whatever info/support you need in India.
No better way to experience the Himalayas :-)
Eric, Lori (and anybody else interested!)
Happy New Year to you guys! Hoping to see some of you in Leh in August this year
