UDAM - Up and Down A Mountain
As Jamil mentioned, I have laid out the course for the 100 miler with the most elevation gain in the world. It is called the UDAM, the Up and Down A Mountain ultra. It will be a loop course, consisting of laps up and down the steepest asphalt section of A mountain above ASU in Tempe, AZ. By my preliminary estimates, it will be 8 loops per mile, or 800 loops total. The elevation gain is projected at %@*# HUGE. Since there is food and medical aid every 1/8 mile, the RD will offer no sympathy for runners.
The preliminary logo is already complete. Coincidentally, this is the only known race to contain a comprehensive and detailed corse map within the logo.
More details to follow.
