Jeff Huff and Bob Murphy will be running in the Plain 100 this weekend in Washington state. Jeff finished the race in second place last year (one of only two finishers) and Bob came ever so close. With a year of experience under their belts, we are all hoping for positive results. Only 11 individuals have ever finished this event.
Plain is not your typical 100 mile race. It is basically a 100-mile unsupported, adventure run. For this race, you carry all of your food and get your water out of streams. A drop bag is available at about the 50 mile mark. They will be making good use of their Ultimate Direction hydration packs at this race.

Good luck guys! We look forward to hearing about your adventure!!
