Inspired by some European ultra team training regimen (Finnish maybe? idk) that I read on a thread somewhere and building on the success of the WTF Ultra that took place on June 26, 2020. This plan was executed in a training session for a 200 mile run I did personally for charity in the fall of 2019. This workout was so unique to me that I decided I shouldn’t be the only one who gets to experience the tempest the body endures, by simply starting and stopping, over an extended time frame, for really great reasons, or no reason at all. The things you think about on a run at 3 am… I digresss.
So here we are, and now with a few tweaks, I give you the M1ndurance WTF Ultra.
Hopefully by the end of our event, with your mind bent, you’re still able to manage a few not so flattering choice words for the race director, either way, we’d like to hear them. The bright side of the event is you will most likely become proficient in the numbers 3, 6, 10 and decimals, not to mention the letters M, K and W, T and F.
This is designed as a virtual last man standing event. All runners will be required to create a 6.2 mile course of road, trail, or treadmill, and repeat said course (or distance in the case of treadmills) every 3 hours, until the last mind is bent.
Tracking will be followed by the RD and/or the duly appointed twisted minds of his accomplices, through the Zoom platform. Each runner will be required to post the miles covered at the end of each loop into the Zoom group for recording. In addition at the BEGINNING of each loop every runner must show for the Zoom group the letters, preferably of creative homemade origin, the letters WTF if you choose to continue. THIS IS A RULE OF THE EVENT.
Additionally, 2 WTF signs shown simultaneously shall indicate the drugs of pain and sleep deprivation are working as one will be attributed to continuing, the other gratuitous profanity for the entertainment of the RD and any other masochists who choose to tune in.
The event will begin at 11:59 PM EST on Friday, November 20. Join the fray from whatever time zone you are in!!
Race swag consists of a sexy shirt with cool lettering, most likely consisting of the letters WTF, in a cryptic fashion to not upset the family gatherings with small children.
Local time: 1:16 AM
AND - a M1ndurance buff.
