Trans Pecos Ultra -- November 2-10, 2019
« on: March 03, 2019, 05:06:33 PM »
A very interesting event in BBRSP this fall (Nov 2-10):

www.trans-pecosultra.com

163 miles in 5 days, in stages; mileage and vert gain each day, roughly, 27 and 2400, 27 and 2200, 27 and 3100, 27 and 2700 and 56 and 3400.

Self supported (i.e., you carry all food for whole 5 days, plus sleeping bag, pad etc)

Beautiful looking route through the inner and outer Solitario, Guale area etc.

Who is in!?

I'd consider the 85 mile portion, so I could drink beer the rest of the trip!

Do you have any information on the 50K?
