1988 Magazine Article

1988 was the year of legends for the Classic.  Chuck Comstock flew off a cliff with his parapente, the race was held for the first time at the favorite Nabesna to McCarthy venue and strategy played a key role for the winner.  This article for Ultrarunning magazine details all of it. Enjoy!

  1. Thanks for posting this. It's my all time favorite race, both as a racer and as a race organizer. Note Hollis French and Dick Griffith and Doug Pope and Brant McGee were all there.

    This is where I met Bob Kaufman who remains a good friend, as does Mark Stoppel, Dave Manzer, and Dick.

    Adrian Crane and Tom Possert got me into commercial adventure racing with an invite to race with them in a 1996 X-Games and the notorius BC Eco-Challenge.
