Thank you for everyones prayers and support while we (me and my family) cheered my baby brother (Ron Spragg) on during his first Ultra-race this past weekend. I am so honored that he let me high-jack his first event; while competing at the Squamish50 in the beautiful rain forrest terrain in British Columbia.
This is from the race page describing the event: Between the relatively flat first six miles and final mile, you’ll find over 3350 m /11,000 ft of climbing jammed into the remaining 43 miles of terrain. Your largest individual climb is 760 m / 2500 ft. This is an exceptionally difficult course made tougher still by the technical nature of a majority of the terrain. Throw in the fact that the back half runs much more difficult than the front half and you have yourself a nice little day of suffering. Thankfully we’ve made every effort to distract you with incredible scenery at every possible turn. Your race begins at 5:30am, by headlamp.
Ascent: 3500 m / 11,000 ft
Descent: 3500 m / 11,000 ft
