The Endurance 100 series in Park City, Utah
Just wanted to plug these events, as the 2004 version was OFF THE HOOK! Anyone serious about epic endurance races (or anyone that loves sugary-sweet single track) should check out any one of these races. Or course, the marquee event, the 100-mile race on August 27, just may be the creme de la creme of mountain-bike endurance races? Talk amongst yourselves...
The race course has the stats to make it one of the hardest 100-mile races, and the racer feedback backs it up. But the impressions left by this race go beyond elevation, altitude, etc. Boris has a unique passion for this sport (endurance racing) that comes through every time you speak with him. Last year, I admit to being a bit skeptical that an event like The Endurance 100, in it's inaugural running, could be such a smooth operation. But Boris really hit a home run. This year is even bigger - 3 events spread through the summer - but the quality is going to remain unchanged. In a word: awesome.
Do yourself a favor and check out any one of these events. The Endurance 100 12-Hour race is on a fantastic course in the heart of Park City. And once again, the 100-mile race takes place on a course with over 95 miles of amazing singletrack. Is The Endurance 100 hard? Yes, but almost everyone's 100-mile race is. The Endurance 100 stands out because of its beauty, its location, and most importantly, its promoter. Boris takes care of you as a racer: fully stocked aid stations with just about anything you could want to eat or drink, volunteers that overflow with enthusiasm and support, and a course so well-marked you'd have to try and get lost.
Trust me, this race will not dissapoint you!
I'm helping Boris (promoter) for 2005, so feel free to contact me directly with questions, etc. Hope to see you all out here!

SS chart room on The E 100 web site
Due to very big interest on MTBR Single Speed forum to The E 100 races
I decided to open new Single Speedtopic on The E 100 chart room.
Here is SS racers posts in one spot with their thoughts, Q&A and opinions.
The 12 Hours Of Endurance.
THE 12 HOURS OF ENDURANCE.
10 Miles loop of beautiful single track trail with 1300 ft. of gain elevation.
It is great course for Single Speed riders.
Check out TOPO map and Directions on racecourse page http://www.thee100.com/race_course.php
Go ride it. You will enjoy it.
Hey Boris, That looks like a killer course. I think psychologically I could deal with a 100 miles better with a course like that where you're not doing laps and it's mostly all singletrack. I've ridden in Park City/Deer Valley and the trails are great. I love how you've hooked 'em all up.
A friend and I are planning on doing theE100. It should be a great event. We're looking forward to it. I just can't decide if I'm going to do the 50mi, 100K, or full 100mi. I'm assuming you have to decide before the start?

to HARDER / The E 100 Team Relay & 50 mile Solo /
to THE HARDEST / The E100 with 100 M, 100 K and 50 M Solo races /.
12 HOURS OF ENDURANCE - this event will introduce athletes to
the great summer outdoor activities in Park City;
lay the foundation for team members to start their journey into the sport of
team endurance racing, and help others merely fine tune their skills.
The race will include the following categories: solo, two-person team, two-person co-ed
and a four person open division team.
The E 100 TEAM RELAY and 50 Mile SOLO race -
The 100mile team relay will cover the entire course, during which teams composed
of 2 to 5 riders will compete / Grand Total of The E 100 racecourse:
100 miles of rolling alpine single track trail with a total gain of 18,627 ft. /
Each team member will race a section, or multiple sections of the course.
50 Mile racers will have finish in Deer Valley Silver Lake area after riding
2 &1/2 stages of the course.
The ENDURANCE 100 SOLO EVENTS - In addition to 100-mile solo race,
this event will offer both 50 mile and 100K OPTIONS to racers not ready to race the 100-mile distance.
So, there is my answer your questions:
1. With your friend do 12 hour race as team of TWO / racecourse is 10 miles with 1300 ft. gain elevation
and as Relay team one is riding for a one hour, another is waiting and resting;
2. You race in the second event as 50 mile solo race;
3. After you Solo 50 mile race experience you will decide for yourself on what distance you would like
Enjoy, go riding and donďż˝t hesitate to ask me more questions.
Time sure has been flying. It�s been two weeks since our very successful Team Relay / 50 MILE solo event.
The results are on our web site and to find your photos from the event please visit

I am happy to report that the racecourse looks even better and more rider friendly than last year. We have all trails marked and ready for the events, thanks to many volunteers who helped me during the week.
