Slamming It

Two NEO TC members are slamming it this summer.

First to begin is the Midwest Slam.
This is a new Slam series.  It consists of 4 100 mile races:

Kettle Moraine 100 Mile Endurance Run
Mohican Trail 100 Mile Run
Burning River 100 Mile Endurance Run
Hallucination 100 Mile Run

Eric Deutsch is on deck to start the Midwest Slam this Saturday, June 2, in Wisconsin.
There is then a quick turn around to follow that up with Mohican 100 June 16.
He'll  have a bit more time to rest before tackling Burning River July 28.
Hallucination, in Michigan is September 7.

The Grand Slam

The Grand Slam of Ultrarunning award is recognition for those who complete four of the oldest 100 mile 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.

Dave Peterman was lucky in the WS$R lottery, and he is going for the Grand Slam this year.
He will begin his quest on June 26, in Auburn for the Western States Run.
Vermont follows quickly on July 16.
Leadville is on August 20, followed by Wasatch on September 9.

Best of luck guys!
