2014 Pine 2 Palm 100 mile endurance run

For several years, I had pondered the thought of running 100 miles (160km). I decided myself last year and registered for “Pine To Palm 100” (En francais, “Pin au Palmier”)

From the race officials :”A remote and rugged classic point to point course traversing the Siskiyou Mountains Range in Southern Oregon. Starting in Williams, OR the course winds it way east to Ashland, OR on a mixture of single track trail, dirt road, with less than 4 miles of pavement. The course boasts over 20,000ft of climb and 20,000 ft of loss with 3 epic climbs to 7,000ft and fantastic views of Mt Shasta and Mt McLaughlin.
