"Ultrarunning". For many, there is a special appeal to trail running. Past the marathon distance, they call it "ultrarunning" - and it's not just for the experienced runner. Guests include: - Rob Youngren: (Huntsville, Alabama) ultrarunner who has completed the Grand Slam of Ultrarunning - which consists of officially finishing the Western States 100, the Vermont 100, the Leadville Trail 100, and the Wasatch Front 100 - all in the same year. - Joe Prusaitis: (Austin, Texas) ultrarunner, coach, and race director. He has also completed 82 ultras - 26 of which were 100 miles. In July 2003, he completed the Hardrock 100 and Badwater back-to-back. Joe is a race director for many Texas events including the Bandera 100/50/25K and Rocky Raccoon 100/50 mile events. - Josh Kennedy is an SSI athlete and regular contributor to the SSI discussion forum. He has shared many of his race reports on this site. Most recently, he completed the inaugural Pinhoti 100 along with the Western States 100. Josh recently completed a "Rim To Rim To Rim" run at the Grand Canyon.
