Montana ultra-marathon race cancelled due to snow
Well, what do you know. For all of Al Gore’s ramblings about “global warming”, seems that Missoula, Montana didn’t get the message.
The race director of a 100-mile ultra-marathon foot race through the Flathead National Forest has cancelled the event due to lingering snow on the route that he says would make the course too dangerous for runners and likely prevent anyone from finishing within the required 36-hour limit.
Portions of the course for the Swan Crest 100 have deep snow that is concealing signs that mark trail intersections. He said he’s convinced the snow won’t melt in time for the event scheduled for July 29.
He said postponing the race would pose problems with shortening daylight hours and increased grizzly bear activity.
Maybe the “fat crazed sex poodle” can’t fly out there on a private jet and melt the snow away with all his hot air!
