Trail racing in the Bay Area for March 2014

Badger Cove is part of the Brazen Ultra Half Series
14 races (maybe 15???) to choose from in the month of March. That's 5 more than last month and a sure sign that spring is on it's way. I have finally made up my mind on what type of running I want to do in 2014. I've decided to run the required 5 races plus the finale in Brazen Racing's Ultra Half Series. The series is 13 races and a finale but to be considered a finalist in the series you only need to run 5 of the 13 and then run the finale. Sounds like a fun challenge! The series has already ran 3 races which leave 10 to choose from so I better get on the stick and start running some of these races. Race #1 for me will be March's Badger Cove on the 15th. I might jump into the Woodside Half a few weeks earlier just because I love Huddart Park. Most people will probably run the Marin Ultra Challenge on the 15th so if you think you want in on that race I would suggest signing up early. This month has a couple ultra distance races and a couple marathons to choose from so not only are we getting more races but along with that we are getting more distances to choose from which is awesome!
