Episode 89 - Way Too Cool 50k Pre-Race Briefing

Episode 89 - Way Too Cool 50k Pre-Race Briefing

Frog cupcakes, prizes, and mud!!! We are talking Way Too Cool 50k, of course. To help you stay on course on race day, we get down to the nitty gritty with Race Director Julie Fingar. Julie is the owner of NorCalUltras and directs many of our iconic and legendary local races in the area including the WTC 50k, American River 25 and 50, and Rio Del Lago 50k and 100. Julie is an active member in our ultra community and recently completed (WON) another Dreadmill race (BURCS Treadmill 50k). She loves those things. She also completed Badwater 135 again last summer and is currently doing the Virtual Satan's Sidewalk!!!  What the heck is that?

And we have James Barstad here tonight. James is another legendary local ultrarunner and always has Julie’s back. James has a long race history and has run all the great local races including WS a couple of times and W2C a handful of times.

But tonight Julie and James are joining us to discuss NorCalUltras Way Too Cool 50k Presented by Altra. Let’s get into it!
