    Running of the blogs

    Kudos to Mountain Hardware for sponsoring a group of wounded veterans from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as they climb Denali. The expedition consists of four wounded veterans, their two mentors and one guide, as they move from the base of North America's highest peak in Alaska's Denali National Park to the mountain's base camp at an elevation of 6,850 feet. You can donate to their climb at this website. A good cause indeed.

    If you are by lucky chance in Golden CO in the near future definitely stop in at the American Alpine Club Mountaineering Museum. A nice collection of Bradford Washburn photographs are going on display. Priceless and well worth a look!

    Fresh off his win at the MMT 100 Karl Melzer outlines some of his upcoming plans. It looks like you can find him racing at the Big Horn 100 in the near future on 19 June. Looks like Team Inov-8 will be busy all around the country this weekend. I bet the Teva Mountain Games will be the place this weekend. Hopefully we can get some coverage on tv over the weekend.

    Here is another great video from our friends at trailruningsoul. Check this one out - the La Granja de San Ildefonso race took place on May 10. Brilliant footage. Patagonia's blog - The Cleanest Line - also has a great surf video posted. Both are well worth a look.

    One final shout out for The Great Outdoor Provision Company. If you are from North Carolina odds are you know this great company that embraces everything from fly fishing to mountaineering. They are up on Twitter and Facebook. Highly recommended!
