Eagleman 2013 - FYI
POSTED: 7/11/12 9:10 AM

I guess taking a year off from EM has gotten to me... I missed the jelly-filled brackish bathwater, I missed the wall of wind at mile 40, I missed the unrelenting heat and humidity of the run...

Registration for next year opens 7/24.

More importantly, if you're even entertaining the notion of racing on what is sure to be, as it always is, the hottest flippin day of the summer, get a hotel pronto. I had trouble coming across any room at all (perhaps some are in reserve) and the one I did find had a 2-night minimum stay requirement, which isn't ideal except for the fact that Bay Bridge traffic post-race is always horrible.

Hope to see you out there next year.

I did this race in '08 and it was just as hot, if not hotter than this year. I told myself that I would have a five-year window before I do this race again. Next year will be five years. Regardless, like every year since I'll be out there with the club tent.

Hugh, This year was much cooler than 2008!

I will probably sign up again. It is a fast race under the right conditions.
