The bib numbers for the Western $tates Endurance Run are up on their site.
David Peterman, one of NEOTC's Grey Beards is attempting the SLAM this year.
He got one of the coveted entry spots for the 2012 Western States race and decided to add the SLAM in as well since he may never do W$ again.
Eight runners from Ohio are competing at this event this summer.
The race is always the last full weekend in June.
The Grand Slam is recognition for those who complete four of the oldest 100 trail runs in the U.S. The "Slam" consists of officially finishing the Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run, The Vermont 100 Mile Endurance Run, the Leadville Trail 100 Mile Run, and the Wasatch Front 100 Mile Endurance Run all in the same year.
