Race PostMortem : 2nd attempt at UTMB/OCC and request for advice
In 2016 I attempted OCC for the first time and made a couple of newbie mistakes that probably lead to my first DNF on this course:
- I arrived the night before the race and didn’t account for jet lag and elevation difference
- I treated race as a fun run and took many amazing pictures and video on course whilst not paying attending to cut off times
- I didn’t make the cutoff at Trient and was (very nicely) pulled off the course by the Sweeper Sisters.

Race Report : Baldy Marathons - 04/28/2018
Baldy Marathons Madness
It all started months ago when a fast ultra runner friend of mine heard I was planning to do Barkleys Fall Classic and/or UTMB/OCC this year. Jake Dinardi said if you are really series about training for those then I know a race director that has put together a course with a fairly high ‘suffer index’. That conversation lead to friending the RD on FB, some messages exchanged and ultimately Aaron Sorensen added me to the ‘closed’ FB groups after I registered on ultra signup even tho technically the race was closed. Thanks Aaron … I thought at the time! Thus began my training for my first ‘off trail, self supported mountain orienteering’ race.
