One of my favorite races of the year, Big Cottonwood Marathon in Utah, has opened for registration for next year’s event. I know I want to return, so I have already started looking for flights out west. I had a great race this year, but didn’t qualify for Boston. That was my goal, and I didn’t make it. I learned though from this race course, and feel that a return would be successful. I have to give it another try.
The Revel Race series currently has three great downhill courses in three U.S. States. The aforementioned Big Cottonwood that I attended this year in Utah, Revel Rockies just outside of Denver, and Revel Canyon City outside of Los Angeles, California. The a Canyon City race for this year is this coming weekend.
As my plans start coming together for 2015, and the possible races start getting filled into the calendar, I really want to attend another Revel event in 2015. I am looking at Revel Rockies as a real frontrunner. Starting at over 10,000 ft. in elevation, the course looks absolutely incredible! I have never been to Colorado before either, so this race naturally is a big draw on me. It would be a perfect race to add to my calendar, as it occurs in July (the 19th to be exact), when races around here are no more than 5k, if any. Might be a really excellent choice for a Summer vacation!
