Now that Scott Mason has made it official, I can proudly announce that I’m now running as part of the Wasatch Speed Goat Mountain Racing Team. iRunFar previously covered the formative rumblings WSGMRT in early March when Scott first posted his idea for the team and again in the iRunFar 2008 Ultrarunner Sponsorship series post regarding small ultramarathon teams. With 16 ultramarathoners on initial Wasatch Speed Goat roster, the WSGMRT needs to be bumped up to the large ultrarunning team post!

With the likes of Olga Varlamova, Amy Sproston, Kelly Ridgway, and Steve Pero on the team, it should be a hoot! I am very much looking forward to meeting in-person my teammates who’ve I’ve only met online, if at all.

At the moment, team sponsors include Wasatchspeedgoat.com (obviously!), Nathan, First Endurance, nuun, Petzl, and Backcountry.com. With backcountry.com on board and a number of shoe related pro deals in the works, I’m looking forward to trying out lots of different shoes and gear this year. What this means for you, iRunFar reader, is that there should be many more iRunFar shoe and gear reviews this year!
