Friday Inspiration – The Great New York 100 Mile Exposition Run

I haven’t run an ultra-marathon (yet!) but I’m fascinated by the sport. Through the years that I’ve followed it, the coverage and interest has become more focused on races in the big mountains of the American West and Europe with east coast races getting very little attention. Races like Hardrock and UTMB are incredible in their difficulty and natural beauty, but there’s something special about the urban race too. Especially the ones that take place in your own back yard — like the Great New York 100 Mile Exposition Run —  organized by Phil McCarthy and others from the local ultra running scene.

Here’s a great video about last year’s race. Someday I hope to toe that starting line.
