The bear story is entertaining: "Please don't tell my mother."

Good on you guys. It looks like a lot of work for the volunteers but it's a great thing to bring a small community together.
Good Luck with it.

Actually, I believe the reason some do it is to train for the Hardrock 100 in Silverton CO, which is 100.7 miles at high altitudes...

Reminds me of this race here in California;

http://www.ws100.com/

The Western States Endurance Run is one of the oldest ultra trail events in the world and certainly one of the most challenging.

The Run is conducted along the Western States Trail starting at Squaw Valley, California, and ending in Auburn, California, a total of 100 miles. The trail ascends from the Squaw Valley floor (elevation 6,200 feet) to Emigrant Pass (elevation 8,750 feet), a climb of 2,550 vertical feet in the first 4½ miles. From the pass, following the original trails used by the gold and silver miners of the 1850’s, runners travel west, climbing another 15,540 feet and descending 22,970 feet before reaching Auburn.
