[Editor’s Note: We’ve now published a 2013 Vibram Tarawera Ultramarathon results article, which we’ll keep updating over the days following the race.]
On Saturday, March 16th at 6:30 am local time (11:30 am Friday Mountain Time in the US), the strongest ultramarathon field in New Zealand history will kickoff at the Tarawera Ultramarathon with an international field facing off for 100k. 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.
