Man Against Horse 50 mile

If you were a centaur could you win both man and horse races? A plausible question I ask myself during the 28th annual Man Against Horse 50 mile endurance run & ride.

Start of the 2011 Man Against Horse Run

A run where both Man & Horse share the trail through the beautiful mountains of Prescott Valley. Man and beast pitted against each other in an eternal battle for grand dominion of planet earth (cue dramatic music). OK so that last past isn't totally true.

This has been on my radar for about a year and I'm so glad I did it. It was a really unique experience and the funnest runs I have done as of yet (even though I had a couple rough patches). I'd like to extend my utmost gratitude to Nick Coury for his help on a couple aid stations where without I would have be much worse off. I also am led to believe his mountain beard does have magical powers just by the sight of it you can run faster.

Pictures I have can be found here:
