Goal: Since I will miss running the Leadville 100 this year on account of a family reunion in NB, Canada, I figured I'd go ahead and do some ultra running while on vacation. The Confederation Trial is a converted railroad line on PEI which runs the entire length of the island from tip-to-tip. I intend to start the run at the trail head in Tignish and complete the run at the end of the trail in Elmira. I will have family and friends supporting me along the way and hope to complete the run in less than 48 hours.
