Sean O'Brien 50[Editor’s Note: This is iRunFar’s 2,000th article!]

Okay… we’re trying a little something new this weekend. On Saturday, February, we’re going to be covering both the Sean O’Brien 50 Mile (6 a.m Pacific start) and Rocky Raccoon 100 Mile (6 a.m. Central start). That’s simple enough. Well, we’re going to combine multiple news streams below. We hope that ultrarunning super fans enjoy this mix.

We’ll be livecasting both events on iRunFar’s Twitter feed. Below, 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.
