I’ll be back to blogging shortly. In the mean time, I’m tying to compile a list of the 10 toughest events that the public can enter. I promise to do something fun with the list. It can be any sport, any place, any amount of time. The only rule is suffering. Mas suffering.
What’s the toughest ultra (Hardrock, Barkeleys?)
The toughest tri (a quick search came up with Powerman Zolfingen, even though it’s a du)?
Badwater is probably on the list.
The toughest RAAM qualifier or, perhaps, RAAM itself: even though it’s not public, qualifying isn’t that hard.
Toughest adventure race?
Iditarod (can anyone enter)?
Mtn bike race (Trans Alp)?
Toughest road race (Everest Challenge)?
Toughest ski tour?
Climbing El Cap in a day, even though it’s not an “event”?
Lookin’ for ideas. Hit me up.
