2015 U.S. National 24 Hour Team

I was officially notified of my selection to the 2015 U.S. National 24 Hour Team competing in Torino, Italy on April 11-12, 2015. I am proud and honored to be running for team USA!!!

Some friends have suggesting doing some fund raising.  I have set up a GoFundMe to get started with that.  We are planning on having a pizza party and maybe some tee-shirts for sale.

Using Google Translate I was able to find this interesting information about the race course for the 2015 IAU World 24 Hour Championships.

“Now yes, it’s official. The World’s 24 Hours of 2015 will be held in Turin, just when the city will be European Capital of Sport.  The event champion, organized by ASD The Run Tour of Italy, will be held on Saturday 11 and Sunday, April 12, 2015 at Parco Ruffini.  The theater of the race will be the new circuit of 1,420 meters, which will open March 16 at Recordando entirely designed in the leafy avenues of the park, able to guarantee athletes a path completely in the shade during the day and perfectly lit during the night.  Under starters are expected about 450 ultramaratoneti representing 35 nations around the world, who will be joined other 12th runners entered the race “open”.  “
