my buddy, nuun and patagonia ultrarunner ty draney won the bear 100 ultramarathon this weekend! he ran 19hrs 59mins 07sec.
8am sunday i received this email:
I don't know if you heard yet or not, but Ty rocked the house. Won the Bear 100 in an amazing time of 19:59. That is an impressive time considering the difficulty of the course, every single down hill was technical with tons of rocks; real mountain running! Beat Erik Storheim and Nate Mcdowell by over an hour. Every single runner coming off of this one was pretty beat up. Even, Leland was hammered by the rocks and steep downhills; super fun race with a lot of getting lost in the night!
Just though I would let you know about Ty's amazing performance!
ty wrote a great race report on his blog here... and he shared with me the gear he used for his BIG win!
Pearl Izumi Peak XC (he actually bought his on backcountry.com too)
so how did ty use nuun during the race?
"Nuun at the bear was awesome. Went through a tube of Orange Ginger and a tube of Tri-berry-both on ice all day long!"
