Twin Peaks Ultra 2013 Cancelled

Due to the government shutdown (U.S. that is!), and the fact that the Twin Peaks Ultra is run in national forest, it has been cancelled.

I feel sorry for those who trained.  But I feel sorry most for the race director.  I can’t imagine putting that much work into something just to have it shut down mere days beforehand.

That’s all I have to say about that . . . for now.

  1. That is really sad! One of our big marathons was also cancelled the other day due to politics. I hate politics!

  2. Boo. That is really unfortunate for all involved. Imagine all that work on the part of so many people and for no race. Boo!

    1. All that work lost is a definite shame.

  3. So I had faith in a false god that you'd finish? What a shame.
