Winter is honestly my favorite time of year to run. You can always add layers to stay warm, not so much the case in August here in Wilmington, NC. It's also the first month I notice the days getting longer. More light on those morning runs, more time on the trails in the afternoon. And in 2021, it's the first month I feel like its the first signs we are heading in the right direction with live events. While many of your favorite winter events continue with a virtual option, Go Time stands on the starting line launching a new in-person space themed 100k trail run and 10k relay happening here in eastern North Carolina. We look forward to seeing you this month in-person or virtually.

“You just finished 100 miles, buddy.”

Those were Tom Clifford’s words as Russ Leaptrot rounded out his 24-hour effort to win the Southern Tour Ultra Last Man Standing event in mid-January.  Tom has directed plenty of races, but this was no doubt his first time closing out an event with a sentence like that.  Russ had left an impression, to say the...
