The pack allows for removal of the water bottle without removing the pack and easy to reach pockets for quick and easy nutrition storage.  You can store up to 4 litres of water on the pack which is handy for runners doing long ultra runs.

2017 Race Review Lost Soul Ultra
When the registration opened I had an ipad and a laptop going to ensure I got in as I had waited too long the previous year. Like many ultrarunners I have always wanted to get in to WS100, although for me this dates back to the 80's when endurance sports were not mainstream and had more cult figures like Ken Shirk aka Cowman A-Mooha
I got in this year and began the serious training cycle in the spring. In June at the WS100 pre race meeting, I won a raffle entry into 2018 WS - I now only had to complete a qualifier and I had fortunately entered in to one!
I managed to stay healthy through the summer but battled 35-40 degree Okanagan heat with more often than not heavy smoke in our valley. In our area this lasted on and off for 6 weeks - who knew it was race day condition training at its best. I made one trip to Lethbridge in mid July - hit some great mid-30's weather and was able to get in a couple of decent training runs. My wife and I drove our van to Lethbridge (opted not to camp down by the river) and got ready for race day. Thursday check in was smooth - lots of great people working the table and milling around. Friday morning came quickly and we were off. My wife and I had made a detailed plan of meeting times based on a 18 hour finish time. Through the hot afternoon I slowed my pace keeping focus that all I needed to do was to finish as I didn't want to risk my WS opportunity. The aid stations were always a high point throughout the day and night with so many encouraging and eager to help volunteers. In my opinion this is one of the best race volunteer groups I have seen in action. The course met and exceeded expectation. Having trained in heavy smoke and heat seemed to have helped as I was fortunate that I did not have any issues from it. A very challenging, but well marked and entertaining race route! I managed to finish in 19 hours. Thanks to the race organizers and all the amazing people that make this event happen. Be proud of what you have.
Side note - I have promised my wife that I will retire from endurance events after WS, but I do have a certain day in January marked on my calendar - we will see. To anyone who wants a great race experience and to challenge themselves with a tough course - check out the Lost Soul Ultra.
