Western States part three: The ladies strike back

To prove that it’s not all about the men here at Ultra168 (and to be honest I needed an education on this front), we’re shamelessly linking back to irunfar again to highlight a preview of the ladies line-up. It seems that three of the favourites are Tracy Garneau, Anita Ortiz, and three-time WS100 champion Nikki Kimball. To read all about it click here.

Beth Cardelli - Winner of the North Face 100km 2010

However, let us not forget local Aussie runner, Beth Cardelli. As we’ve mentioned before, Team Ultra168 thinks that there will be a few turned heads as she strolls up to the finish line. She’s a seriously talented runner having finished second overall in her first 100 miler at the Great North walk last year. She’s also a previous winner of the North face 100km in the Blue Mountains, so she has form. In true Aussie and biased style, we’re sticking our neck out as we think she could podium at Western States this year all being well. If not, egg on our face 🙂

I'm a mediocre runner who can bat above his average when I train hard. A man of extremes, I do enjoy everything life offers and consider it an absolute pleasure just to be able to put one foot in front of the other and let my mind wander somewhere different.
