Canyons Endurance run 100k - May 2, 2015

Then came running in the tough canyons. Shavi did Canyons Endurance Run 100K (the longest he went in his training for his 100-mile race in June end). Shavi completed the 100 kms in 16 hours and 40 minutes. It was brutal but he did it. This was the first year of this race and the race directors did a great job with aid stations and marking the course. Shavi got back home really late but it was totally worth his training. Highly recommended if you are training for a tough race ahead or if you want to torture yourself!:)
Also, this year, they introduced live webcast with which we could track the runners. It made it a little easier for me to track Shavi but later on once he was done, we realized that it was not accurate, especially closer to the finish. Infact, it was quite off. It could be inconvenient for some runners since the tracking device is a big watch tied to a strap which the runners wear on their wrist. Shavi mentioned that it was not bothering him much except when he would think about it:)
