Welcome to the Grand Mesa 100 blog. I've been asked why I wanted to put on this race. I've been doing ultras for six years and have had such a great time and met such cool people that I decided to put on a race. I'm lucky enough to live in such a terrific area for trail running. I enjoy running on the Grand Mesa and I want to share this spectacular location with others who will appreciate it. My goal is to create a race that runners would want to run again and again. I also hope to make a little money to help local community groups.
