Nancy Hobbs at IAU / WMRA Annual Meetings

Note from Nancy Hobbs (Director or the All American Trail Running Association and Chairperson of the USATF Mountain, Ultra and Trail Running Sport Council):

Greetings, I am presently in Monaco for IAU/WMRA meetings at the IAAF headquarters. I learned last evening that the 100km slated for Gibraltar will have a much improved organization from the 2009 50km road event held there. The course will be an 8km loop -- this is the initial read on the route -- which will be flat. The government is involved as the organizer and we are assured it will be a great event. The 50km road event will be held either in August or fall in either Ireland or Italy -- we'll learn more today on this. THere will be a long distance trail challenge and we'll learn more today on this as well. The date will be in July. The WMRA meetings begin today - we will make plans for the world masters mountain running and also venues for Grand Prix and more. Best, nancy
