Important Announcement



The Future of the Inspiration 100: Scott and I have decided to end the race after the fifth year, which will happen in 2016. It has been a great run, and we look forward to doing it two more times, with feeling. 

That being said, this is what to expect from the Inspiration 100 over the next two years, a/k/a The Two Year Plan. 
  • 2015 Inspiration 100 (September 12, 2015): This year we will do the 107-mile version of the course, in reverse. It is just crazy enough to work! This will hurt in an entirely new way.  More details later this month.
  • 2016 Inspiration 100 (September 7, 2016): For the final Inspiration 100, we will do the classic 99-mile course (if you can call something classic after doing it twice) and finish the way we started.
That is it. Please let me know if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you in September, if not sooner.
