11.45 Top 10 Tips to Creating An Adventure You Will Never Forget!The North Face Explorer Team member James Poole has run some of the most prestigious trail races in the world. He's finished Western States and a few UTMBs. He's tried to rouse the Spartans in Greece and even hallucinated his way across the Gobi Desert in China. While he's a huge fan of big epic races, his true passion lies in self-sufficient runs and the idea that we can all create our own race course and finish lines. During this short talk, James will give his top 10 tips for being your own Race Director and creating an adventure you will never forget - and you'll probably be the winner!
