Re: Is 100 miles in one day too much? RE: [RC] WEG 2006 - Maryanne Gabbani

This would work brilliantly in the desert and you could watch it all from a blimp if the riders wear bright colours. I adore the visual concept. Be careful of what you wish for...but then who would be throwing water bottles?

While it would make the event even less press friendly, there is no
real  reason that you would have to have a track for the end.  You
issue
each competitor a GPS which reports the exact position at the 24
hours.
Since the event organizers know the trails, position exactly determines

the miles traveled.

First, for this new event I suggest it be a max of 12 hrs...since a quick
endurance horse will finish 100 miles in 12 hrs. so 24 could go way
overboard. Then...in a wonderful celebration of GPS technology, I suggest
you put them all in one place, shoot off a gun, and have them scatter
llike quail heading off in every direction. No need to even teach the
horse to steer. Just run for 12 hrs. and check the GPS to see who is the
winner!
