I don't know!

I do know if I do one it is going to be somewhere beautiful in the mountains. If I am going to spend that much time outside it should just be a beautiful and logistically-challenging long hike. So not laps around a reservoir outside Houston, for example.

agreed. For god knows what reason, doing one of those is hovering around the edges of my bucket list, too. not sure I'm up for that much type II fun.

Not 100M, but not flat or low either.

Bwahaha Biggins that sounds amazing. There wasn't quite enough climb in the recent race to qualify. Although the 50k I ran in June might cut it (1800m, New England terrain). But it seems you can talk your way in.

Cristina that race sounds brutal. The Never Summer 100k (one of their qualifiers) might be on the list for next year.

Yeah I have no desire to run the Mogollon Monster 100 but it fits your criteria. :-)

Though, really, not sure I have any desire to run any 100 miler. 50 miles or 100km seems like a significant challenge but still not a completely bananas thing to do. I don't know anyone who has completed a 100 miler who hasn't had significant hallucinations towards the end of the run and that just pushes it out of my risk-averse comfort zone.

Hey I ran a hut traverse (50m, >5k m of climb) and only had hallucinations the first time. The second time went better.
