CASTLE ROCK 100K
After completing the Cuyamaca 100K this past October 2019 in Julian, California, I am primed and ready to tackle the 62+ miles of the Castle Rock 100K in Truckee, California in August 2020. This trail race has 16,200 of vertical gain, and is regarded as ‘arguably one of the most difficult trail races in the United States.’ I’ve been training hard out here in the desert heat, and at elevation in the San Gorgonio/San Jacinto mountain ranges to prepare for my 4th qualifying run to achieve entry into the 2021 Western States 100. It has been a dream of mine for several years now, and I know it will become a reality!!
Endurance Athletics: Challenges
As we all move forward in our lives, let us pray for the opportunities to grow in strength and love. Not only for mental and physical strength to get through the day and whatever challenges we are up against, but also never forgetting to love the incredible journey we are all traveling, and being thankful for the OPPORTUNITY TO LIVE!
“Darren exudes a passion for life and enthusiasm for challenge that is undeniably inspiring. We were extremely fortunate to have him visit Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and share his strategies for overcoming seemingly insurmountable odds. We are often told in our medical training that the road to becoming a physician is a series of marathons and it can appear daunting at times. The tools Darren shared for finding passion in the face of such challenge will not only serve our residents during their training, but continue to benefit them throughout their medical practice.”
