Although La Sportiva has yet to officially announce the 2011 La Sportiva Mountain Cup, we’ve obtained an advanced copy of the schedule. This year’s series will once again consist of 10 sub-marathon distance trail races. The season will kick off in North Carolina with the 20 miler race at the Uwharrie Mountain Run on February 5 and conclude at the Jupiter Peak Steeplechase in Park City, Utah on August 6th. With the Mountain Cup season lasting just over half a year, there will be no weekends with two or more Mountain Cup races in 2011. Once again, $25,000 in prize money will be on the line. We here at iRunFar are psyched to announce that we’ll be covering the entire series, just as we did in 2009 and 2010.
