Everyone who trains or races beyond just a few hours is challenged by energy depletion, hitting the wall, or bonking.  No one knows this better than an Ultra Marathon Runner. Much less a Champion like Michael Wardian 5 time member of Team USA for the 100K World Championships and 3 time qualifier of the USA Olympic Trials with a personal record of 2:17:49.  Richard Diaz has invited these two professionals to share their knowledge on the topic of feeding and energy replacement during the long run.

Running The Grand Canyon-Rim to Rim to Rim 04/25 by The Natural Running Network Live | Sports Podcasts

Running The Grand Canyon-Rim to Rim to Rim 04/25 by The Natural Running Network Live | Sports Podcasts.

rim2rim.psdTrail Running is on the rise; one of the most epic challenges for an Ultra Trail Runner is traversing the Grand Canyon.  Listen as Vanessa Runs shares her journey from rim-to-rim-to-rim, running through one of the 7 great Natural Wonders of the World.

How long will it take?  Well, first of all, it’s not a race. It would be crazy to do this run and not take some time to enjoy the incredible scenery.  A mid-pack runner should plan on at least 13-15 hours.

It is a tough run, with a little bit of everything as obstacles: some rocky sections of trail, some exposure, two BIG hills, heat, cold, altitude (7000 feet at the south rim, 2600 feet at the bottom, 8000 feet at the north rim).

You will definitely feel like you’ve accomplished something when you finish.  And you will see the Grand Canyon as few have ever seen it!

The 1929 Bunion Derby the most grueling ultra-marathon of all time 05/02 by The Natural Running Network Live | Sports Podcasts

The 1929 Bunion Derby the most grueling ultra-marathon of all time 05/02 by The Natural Running Network Live | Sports Podcasts.

bunion-derby2.psdOn March 31, 1929 seventy seven men began an epic 3,554 mile footrace from New York to Los Angeles punishing their bodies an average of 46 miles for 78 days over mostly unpaved roads in hopes of winning $25,000 in prize money. The 1929 Bunion Derby is considered the most grueling ultra-marathon of all time.

The event promoter Charlie Pyle put together a traveling Vaudeville show in hopes of raising the prize money, complete with dancing debutants, an all-girl band wearing pilot outfits and black faced comedians.  This is an amazing tale told by the author Charles B. Kastner.
