Broken Arrow 26K Race Report 2018

The Broken Arrow Skyrace is a super fun and challenging event patterned off of European mountain races. Runners can choose from a 26K, 52K, or new this year, a 10K. The 26K is the main loop of the course, and 52K runners do that loop two times. I have now done the 26K twice, although I didn't do a race report in 2017. This year, Kevin joined me for the trip to Tahoe and we both raced the 26K.

We arrived in Squaw Valley late on Friday night and had Saturday to explore the expo and to relax. The expo had lots of tents for vendors and I was especially excited to meet Gina from Trail Sisters, a team that I joined just before this event. The 52K was also on Saturday, so we spectated and cheered for those runners while we were in the village.


I became nervous about the weather report on Saturday evening, which said Sunday would be 40 degrees and rainy at the mountain base. That would mean cold and maybe snowy on the mountain. This would be fine if I were prepared, but silly me had forgo…
