Today in crazy...3,100 mile race

Recommended Posts

Fancy racing 3,100 miles around a 0.5mile city block? Then this race is for you.

There's a webcam of the aid station as well.

I have so much respect for people who do this kind of thing.

12 days in and race record holder Aalto of Finland through 1300km, with a 50km lead. The record will stay for another year (at least) but it's still a close race at this point.

Two weeks in and Aalto's lead back to 20km on a day when the top 4 runners passed the 1500km mark.

It's getting tight with less than 3500km to go! :w00t1:

I just look at the Vlog Blog that's styled  " Race director Rupantar LaRusso captures some of the atmosphere of this unique race. " . It showed half a dozen people standing on the start line (they look like they were praying) then start. Two walked off and sat down.

Riveting stuff.

Wonder if there is some clown on the sideline saying

”good job mate, looking good, not far to go now!”

Approaching 4000km, Aalto has a 64km lead. The race started over 5 weeks ago.

Recent days have been around 100*F.

"Only" about 1000km to go.
