@AWHITTINGTON: for urban trail training (I am NOT kidding) run on a BMX-track (but make damn sure the kids don't run you in the dirt - wear something bright) - this and lots of push-ups, chin ups, burpees, squats, lunges, bootstrappers, bethaks, dands and similar calisthenics will give you the athletic base needed on the trails that most of the super-skinny pavement runners lack big time ....

Mountain Masochist Trail Run (#MMTR) 50 miler is in the books, 10hr 28min.
3 days to the Mountain Masochist Trail Run 50 Miler in Virginia. Been tapering all week, ready to go.
out of all the ultra's out there most are trail correct? How do you guys -- build up the strength to endure such a distance if you don't normally train on trails? I race trail once a year-- and it kicks my butt everytime-- i admire all of you, and just seeking some training advice-- Thanks
Time on Feet and Time in the Trails. Seems to work for me.
Run hills, lots of them. At least once a week make 1 run for elevation.
I would do as much training on trails as possible. To motivate my training as I have only been running ultras for 3y or so, I signed up for a 50 mile race and set up a training program. The next year I attempted a 100 and the following year completed one. I posted both of my training plans here on Movescount. There is no substitute for trails, power hiking and running down hill need practice to be proficient. Good luck
