This Saturday, the world’s most competitive trail 50 miler, The North Face Endurance Challenge 50 mile, will be run in the Marin Headlands outside of San Francisco, California. In fact, one could argue that this field could edge out that of the Western States 100 and Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc to make it the most competitive trail ultra field in the world this year. Last year, the TNF EC Championship’s stacked field led to an amazing showdown between Uli Steidl and Montrail’s Geoff Roes with Steidl ultimately prevailing. Both Steidl and Roes will return to battle an even deeper field than last year with what might be the best foreign contingent to ever toe the line for an American trail ultra.
