Topeka 5-50K Trail UnRun

I'm "sponsoring" an unsupported 50K at Ceder Crest / Kaw Park on Sat. Nov. 16.  The course will be four 7+ mile loops in sort of a figure eight, with 3-4 miles on each side of the Kaw River State Park road.  Due to the loop nature, you can run anything from a mile or two to 50K or more.

I'm still working on the course, but what details I have will be posted over on blogspot: http://unrun-topeka.blogspot.com/

Hell Creek on Heels 30k and 50k

Just a heads up that I have added a relay team option to the Hell Creek on Heels 30k on September 22nd and to the 50k on November 3rd!

I am hoping this will draw more people to the event to keep the solo runners cheered up and always have someone to 'play' with! And of course, provide you folks with a new challenge that do not think you could run all of the distance on your own!

I do not have this info on the website yet, but I am working on the changes!

Suggested shoes for a really bad ankle

I have a bad ankle and have been running on pavement for the last few months but I am ready to get back on the trails.  I had a severe sprain and tore ligaments (for the 3rd time in my life) in July 2011 and I still have problems with it.   Does anyone have suggestions for trail running shoes.  I noticed that New Balance has a high top running shoe "621 High Trail Running Shoes".  I found some reviews for them but they were mostly from walkers.  I really want to get back on the trails but I…
