The North Face Endurance Challenge 2012[Update: We’ve posted full 2012 TNF 50 results with links to many other race resources.]

For the fourth straight year, iRunFar will be livecasting from The North Face Endurance Challenge 50 Mile Championships in the Marin Headlands just north of San Francisco, California. As always, both the men’s and women’s fields feature a veritable who’s who of trail ultrarunning with an even greater than usual influx of shorter-distance talent entering this year’s fray. Despite being in the center of a five-day stretch with huge rain totals, the race should only see intermittent precip. Still, there’ll be plenty of mud to enhance the day’s challenges.

We’ll be livecasting the event on iRunFar’s Twitter feed. We’ll also be combining our twitter feed with other possible news sources and encouraging all of you to join the discussion in the CoverItLive window below (once moderation goes live on race morning).

Here are a couple resources to help you follow the race:
