World Trail Challenge 2011 - The USA needs YOU!

Connemara, Ireland site of the 2011 World Trail Challenge

The Mountain/Ultra/Trail Council, which is a council under USATF, is looking for 5 qualified men and 5 qualified women to go to Ireland to compete at the 2011 IAU World Trail Challenge in Connemara, Ireland.  This approximately 50 mile trail race takes place on Saturday, July 9, 2011.  Read more about the race here.

USATF is NOT sponsoring a team, meaning you will not receive any monetary support from USA Track and Field.  But, the IAAF or IAU will provide transportation within Ireland and accomodations.  Seems like you just need a plane ticket and some pocket money.   So if you’d like to see what a real stout tastes like while actually in the home land of Ireland, consider putting this on your list. 

In order to see if you qualify, send your resume to Howard Nippert at  Howard is on the Mountain, Ultra Trail Council and will be receiving and reviewing resumes.  He will let you know if you qualify for the team.  Click here for more specific on qualifying for the team.

As of right now, Howard has only received 6 resumes from men and only one resume from a women.  So let’s step it up, especially the ladies!!


  1. Hi Kami,

    I'm working on an article about Running Logs and was wondering if you could answer a couple questions for me.
