The additional spots in the Half Marathon are gone. Thanks everyone.
Registration for the Badgerland Striders Super Series has closed and there are now four openings available in the 2013 Ice Age Half Marathon. If you would like to run with us on May 11, email Jeff at email@example.com. First come, first serve! There will be no wait list.
This year’s Ice Age 50 training runs will be held on Sat. April 20 and Sat. April 27 at the Nordic trailhead in the Southern Unit of the Kettle Moraine Forest (the Ice Age Start/Finish area). Both runs will begin at 7:30 a.m.
We’ll cover the entire 50-mile course over those two days — 35 miles on April 20th (the south end) and 19 miles on April 27th. There will be one aid station with water and Heed.
The course will be marked by Tom Bunk and Craig Swartwout, but these are loosely organized runs. Just sign in and run. You don’t have to cover the entire distance — and everyone is welcome, whether or not they are registered for Ice Age. If you have any questions, contact the RD at firstname.lastname@example.org.
More detailed information will be emailed to all registered runners as we get closer to the training runs.
All three Ice Age Trail races are sold out.
Congratulations to everyone who registered this weekend. We’ll do our best to deserve your patronage and support.
If you cannot participate on May 11 for whatever reason, please notify the Race Director immediately at email@example.com.
And if you know someone who is willing to volunteer on race day, we’re always looking for help. Please contact the Ice Age Volunteer Coordinator, Angela Barbera, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks again. Now get off your computer and go out for a run!

Please register early!!
We’ll be visiting the NEW Berkeley Running Company at 2852 University Ave., Madison on Wed., Nov 14 at 6:00 p.m. to talk about ultrarunning and the Ice Age Trail 50. Dave Dehart, 10-time IAT50 finisher and former member of the US 100K team, will be joining me. We’ll be covering the basics of ultrarunning — how to choose a race, training, race day preparation and what’s happening in the local, regional and national ultrarunning scenes.
Looking forward to meeting some Madison area ultrarunners and aspiring ultrarunners!
Contact Berkeley for event details (608-395-BERK) or Jeff at email@example.com if you have any other questions.
I’ll be at the REI store in Brookfield, Wisconsin on Tuesday, December 4 to talk about ultrarunning and the Ice Age 50. The event begins at 6:30 p.m. Last year, we had a good crowd, so it’s probably smart to get there a bit earlier.
With registration for the 2013 races scheduled to open in December, this would be a good time to ask any questions you have about Ice Age, training or ultrarunning in general. Should be fun.
The 2013 Ice Age Trail races will be held on Saturday, May 11. Registration for all three events — 50 mile, 50k and Half Marathon — will open in early December.
