IT'S RACE WEEK! And that means it's time, once again, to address this existential question as only UltraRunning Magazine can ask it? Pictured here, #mendorunfest legends Tracy and Tiff doing what they do best. You fill in the rest.

One this is certain (on top of a good time and the music of Voodoo Switch): we celebrate how trails bring us together, connect us to each other, and smooth out the rough patches in life.

Getting ready for Dick Collins Firetrails! This post from 2019 and Victor Ballesteros really captures the MAGIC of the race.

Firetrails is in the books. As always, we were proud to be there supporting the tribe. Congrats to everyone who toed the line and made their adventure! Big THANK YOU to Adam Ray and the Scena Performance crew for letting us play.

Once upon a time, this was my first 50 miler. Although I miss the racing, we're forever grateful for this community! -peace

Notes from the Thursday Race Briefing. Here's a slightly edited version of the briefing (removing the moments where I inexplicably couldn't get my mental hands on Skyline Aid Leader Clay Lindberg Van Batenburg's name - sorry Clay, so embarrassing!)

Also, this Google Earth map of the course:

And these two Gmap pedometer versions of the course (50k/half). If you view them on Sattelite view you can see the terrain.

And here it is - pictures from this mornings Skyline training run. It’s the first in person thing we have done. It’s also the first time a lot of us have seen each other live. As Jen Watters said, ‘There’s a lot of chatting. We have a lot to catch up on.’

I managed to get a picture of everyone acting tough. No one would hold the medal for a photo op since the universal feeling was that it would be bad luck. Amber wouldn’t even look at it.

We are welcoming our 2019 Women's Skyline 50k Champ back 2021. Kristina Randrup has been busy - busybusybusy - running and winning it turns out. She most recently won the women's race and came 5th overall at AR50.

We have a bunch of photos of Kristina running from the last 5 years -- great podium shots too -- but just saw this one and like it a lot.

And, oh yeah, we're doing bib photos again.

Notes from the Skyline Endurance Run blog....

7/6 So this is 40...

Skyline Endurance Run is one of the oldest continuously running 50k's in the US and this year, we are glad to welcome in our 40th Anniversary. Skyline was my first 50k, as it has been for many people and when I became race director, every previous RD showed up for my first running. I will have a longer-form reflection in the coming week for two. For now, the thing to know is that the race will offer a finisher's medal for the first time.

Amazingly, this is the 40th Anniversary of the Skyline 50K Endurance Run. To commemorate this milestone -- and to celebrate that we can race at all -- all finishers (both 50k and half marathon) receive the very first Skyline finishers medal.

To those of you not familiar with Skyline, we've never had a medal and in the last 10 years, that's been a point of pride as schwag chasing has become such a big part of trailrunning.

But as we age, so too do we let go of crotchety opinions. For this year at least ;-)

You only get one if you run, though, so don't dilly dally.

We are a trail running crowd, I know -- but it's been so long without events, I thought some of the women in our community might be interested in a good old-timey 10k. We're going to run on with Sonoma Womans Tri

Give it some thought then sign up! We're just a bit more than 3 weeks away. What better place to be BACK than in Healdsburg?

As promised, we had a little 'informal' run up on the Palisades last weekend for the Napa Valley Endurance Run.

The trails are....rough! I wasn't planning to mark at all between Oat Hill Mine Trail and Palisades but it was just too confusing. But conditions are improving!

Thank you to everyone who came out.

Can't wait for November!

Anyone know of group runs that occur in the Annadel park region? Asking for a friend who is looking to get back into more trail running and lives nearby.
Is there some chance to change my 50k Skyline T-shirt Large for an Small one? Some lady is interested to trade it?, thanks, Susana
Hi, any chance someone has a gpx file of the Mendocino Running Festival on the Hendy Woods course (2018???)?
Well, it's taken me most of the day to write something about Robert Rhodes mainly because I'm still in a state of shock. We lost a real cornerstone of our community in Robert and lost him way too soon. Everyone who knew Robert, which was just about everyone in the local trail running community, knew him as a kind and thoughtful person, and as a great friend. He, of course, was very active with BayTrailrunners and his film festival. His passing leaves a hole in the heart of local trail running. You'll be missed Robert.
Can we get some updates on where everyone is on their virtual races???
Hey Adam Ray this looks like a great place for an aid station when races are allowed again.
Jenn, Dave Nicely, Mark Campbell Mark Hauber and the rest of the Scena Performance gang flying down the stream trail at skyline gate
Start to the Epiphany Run Please tag yourself and comment about your adventure and miles ? Did you make a new trail friend? Thanks Adam Ray and @Scena for continuing this tradition and the Scena Ambassadors that were there to support everyone
I shared a stretch of trail with Nico (kid running his first marathon) and Rick (pacer dad). What a team!
Hello everyone I know this is super last minute however anyone else interested in doing a training run of the DC50 mile course tomorrow I will be out there around 1030ish
Looking forward to your event in April 2020, Napa
Thank you for an awesome weekend at Ancient Redwood Running Festival! I had such an amazing time and met so many awesome people!
