A humbling ultramarathon adventure.
This weekend, while some of us will be lying ocean-side with adult beverages, relaxing, and celebrating Memorial the best way we know how, there will be a select few attempting to run 100 miles in three days. This challenge is called the New York Pioneer 100 Mile Trek, a three day event in memory of Abe Fores, John Sterner, Al Williams, Nat Cirulnik, Ed Levy, Harry Murphy, Aldo Scandurra, Kurt Steiner, Joe Yancey and Ted Corbit.
The 100 Mile Trek is a New York Ultra Running Grand Prix event which covers 33.333 miles a day and it begins tomorrow at 9 AM at Alley Pond Park in Queens. To learn more about this ultra adventure and, for the brave, to find out prices for day of registration, click here.
