  1. Arrowhead 135

    What is tiredness? A sleepy head? Illogical decisions? Memory loss? Apathy? Here is my account of the 40 miles of terrain from checkpoint 2 to checkpoint 3 for 32-50 hours of race time and over 53 hours of sleep deprivation. https://tyrelady.wordpress.com/2018/02/23/the-hare-the-tortoise-and-the-moon/

    Things could have been a lot worst if I had not experienced frostbite in 2014. Response and timing is key to ensure the self infliction does not result in a long uncertain period (about 10-12 weeks healing period) of whether you will keep a limb or not. This is part 2 of dealing with people and the deadly cold over 72 miles https://tyrelady.wordpress.com/2018/02/15/arrowhead-135-the-taming-of-the-dragon/

    If any of you masochist are looking for an adventure and a hard time in a harsh environment, here is the start of my write up for Arrowhead 135: https://tyrelady.wordpress.com/2018/02/07/arrowhead-135-the-preamble/ Some background: It is a 135 mile event that has to be completed within a 60 hour limit You can run, bike or ski. Temperatures can go down to -50 degs C as it did in 2014 and bit my fingers. It is held at the end of January as this typically has the worst weather, starting at International Falls. This is a town on the US/Canadian border . It is also known as killer frost falls but not to put off visitors, it is also known as the Icebox of the Nation. The route is along a snowmobile trail. The first 10 miles is straight and boring and then becomes more interesting when it turns onto the Arrowhead Trail. It is very reasonably priced compared to other snow and ice ultras at $200 USD. You are expected to carry all your own survival gear and there are only 3 checkpoints along the entire route. The right gear is important for your own safety. The official website is here: http://www.arrowheadultra.com/
  4. Use it like any search engine. Type the destination you want to go to and try to refine it. Here's what I see from doing a search at Tahan Rata - where the Century Pines Resort is. A lot of places and you can look at the reviews of the place to see what others say. If you can get a group together, worth renting a place for yourself So much better than staying in a hotel
  5. @beast - can also check AirBnB. Have found it pretty useful to find places close to races Link am giving you gives me credit for referring you if you book: www.airbnb.co.uk/c/rchang374

    Many trail events in other countries are going cupless for exactly the reason @beast indicates. Too many blur runners who throw rubbish into the long grass/forest areas. Plus they will DQ runners that are found littering. So excellent that any Sg events that are even partially on trail go cupless.

    @Top Chan - how effective do you think the PHC signs were in encouraging runners to put their trash in the bin? need more runners to wear a Bin It on your shirt in your next event. Will you pin this to your shirt in your next event?

    One little lady can't do a lot but a whole bunch of Green Ambassadors can make a noise Also noted that the rules state: Lagi - can also report your fellow competitor for littering...after all it is a series and all should abide by the same rules. The challenge is on for all outdoor events to be clean and green.
