The 7th Annual Peterson Ridge Rumble 30k/60k is this Sunday, April 5, in Sisters, OR. This is my baby. I founded it in 2003 as a 17 mile run on the Peterson Ridge trails near Sisters. That first year, there were 30 people and 6 dogs. In 2004, I added an ultra distance (35 miles at the time). Now there are two distances, 60ish km and 30ish km, 300+ people and 40 dogs. I love that kind of evolution!
Also this weekend is the American River 50 miler. As usual, there will be lots of people running it - slow, fast, and everywhere in between, just lots of runners! I'm going to make a prediction and say both the female and male champions will be from Bend. But only one of those will then toe the line in Squaw.
Are you ready to Rumble?!
