Ultramarathon Daily News, Wed, June 10

Where is Scott Jurek on the Appalachian Trail?

Twelve IPAs for people who hate IPAs.  What do you think? I’m not a huge hop-head, and I like most of the beers on that list.

Speaking of Appalachia, rednecks masterfully heckle half marathon runners in this funny video.

Another great report from Cory…this one from wet and wild Bryce Canyon 50.  OK, check out those pics and tell me it’s not one of the most picturesque courses in the country.

This lawsuit will be moving forward. What do you think about the merits? Reasonable complaints?

Hope you didn’t miss this fun interview with Jason Green. Jason’s heading out to California in a few weeks for his first Western States (2nd hundred) after three years of losing the lottery.  He draws comparisons between ultramarathons and skateboarding, founded the Yeti Trail Runners in Atlanta, directs some fun sounding races, has drank every single beer on the top 100 list, and has got stories to share.

Dakota reports on his runs from Korea and China.

Born and raised on a small island in Maine, Gary Allen was also the RD for the event Runners World called “the best race ever” and has hosted ultramarathons on a 2 mile stretch of road that sell out immediately.   Here’s a neat article about him, and here’s our interview with him from a few years ago.

And another fun event for a good cause…a 24hr run in Chicago in July with a Christmas theme.

It keeps getting worse: Another former NOP coach “not surprised” about recent BBC piece on doping. Offers some interesting insight into Phil Knight’s position on the issue.

Fun sounding timed event in Kentucky.

Another update on Dave Mackey’s condition and trail to recovery.

Check out the new MUT calendar widget over on the right! Pretty cool! It’s a beta version from ultrarunning magazine. What do you think?
