Trail race: Lost Worlds 100K Race Series
Traveling to exotic locations and participating in beautiful ultra-trail races is a wonderful way of celebrating the love for trail running. There are plenty of ultra-trail events to chose from. Lost Worlds 100K Racing is race director Tim Holmstrom’s latest concept, an international series of 50K and 100K ultra-trail marathons, qualifying for a final 100 mile race set in one of the most spectacular locations in the world.
Holmstrom, an outdoor sports photographer, who previously has organised Coastal Challenge in Costa Rica, is particularly fond of the idea of bringing adventure seeking runners to stunning and spectacular locations.
According to the website: www.lostworldsracing.com these endurance events will take place in inspiring World Heritage sites of matchless beauty. The format welcomes individuals or teams. Apart from hard core ultra running there also are several relay and trek options for family and friends.
Tim, whom I met while covering adventure racing in Patagonia and Utah, told me that there will be 15 year old swedish competitor and a blind german runner attending the Causeway Crossing event. You can follow the race series via facebook and twitter.
