Our mission is to help you take your next step on your ultra running
journey. And, sometimes, if you are like us, you may not know what that next step may look like.
Races can come in all different types of formats with varying distances, duration, and locations. Training for ultras often includes
considerations for heat training, elevation, and altitude changes. But
there are those gems out there that turn the equation around and
challenge runners to the other extreme. Welcome to the world of cold.
We'd like to introduce you to the Frigid Fox which takes place in
January and is a 63 mile trek along the Ice Age Trail in Southeastern
Wisconsin with an elevation gain of a little over 7000 feet. The race
has a 24 hour cutoff which seems like a generous cutoff until you
understand how harsh the weather can be in Wisconsin in January. Part of signing up for this race is that runners acknowledge an understanding that the weather can be unforgiving. That's what makes this race unique and one heckuva challenge we think.
Join us as we sit down with Dustin Schmidt, the Race Director of the
Frigid Fox to tell us all about it.
If you like the show, leave us a comment or rating to help others hear about it. We appreciate you taking the time to join us.
