Video of the Week: 100 Miles

If this doesn't inspire you to get out of the arena and go for a trail ride, you'd better check your pulse!

This week's video runs about seven minutes, which is longer than our usual featured videos. But if you think that's a test of endurance, try riding—or running!—the Vermont 100-mile endurance ride. That's what the woman behind the helmet cam did when she recorded this highlights reel.

The ride is held concurrently with the Vermont 100 endurance run, a footrace that tests the mettle of even the most dedicated runners. From this helmet cam video, we see the cheerful moments trotting through town, being cheered on by spectators. We watch the camaraderie as runners and riders work their way up the hills. Then there are the quiet, solitary stretches through rain and mud, and the final trek through the darkness toward the finish. If this doesn't make you want to exit the arena and go for a ride, you'd better check your pulse.
