/
July 26, 2018

It’s been two weeks since the finish of one of the hardest endurance events in my career – The Tour Divide and its finally starting to sink in. I have reflected of the month long journey and the following highlights might offer some insights to the event if you are considering it in the future. As many of you know, I don’t write detailed race reports, but shorter summaries of the learning lessons so you can use some ideas and of course not make the same mistakes as me! I will never forget this brutal event as it was my 3rd 30-day endurance race (Triple DECA Ironman, Trans Am and Tour Divide) and it offered plenty of surprises and challenges along the way.

Many times, the race excitement overtakes the financial reality and rough estimates of the cost to participate in a long event like the DECA. Over the years, coaching and advising athletes with respect to the DECA, one of the major missteps is that athletes don’t fully understand what everything will cost with the DECA. The DECA is significantly less expensive compared to races like Ultraman, Race Across America, climbing Mt. Everest, swimming the English Channel and other multi-day events.
