Can confirm jessica hardy and newton baker are still linked but both are more on the propogating the myths side of things rather than actually potentially profiting or funding their lifestyles like lubin, sweeney, ramsay, brown and other.
Will check more on knodel, mazenko, carlson, and cooper. And there are others not listed who I'll list as soon as I put together the linked questionable charities list.
Current darren von soye confirmation or not tbd. He was "in" up until july 2015. The 100 mile club does "race across usa", "run with us america" and "24 hour run for kids" event* in southern california in the spring. Another event the "100 mile club" does is a 50 and 100 mile event called "ec 100" in october in southern california which is billed as an urban ultramarathon to "raise funds for the children of the 100 mile club."
Darren had been "in" in leadership capacities with all of these until july 2015 when he cancelled the october 2015 ec 100 race, (he was RD).Kara lubin, ed ettinghausen and alfa severino suddenly took over as RD's and participants are required to raise a set amount of money for the 100 mile club "charity" in order to enter ec 100. There was a lot of bad blood at that time when darren cancelled the 2015 ec 100 and was replaced by kara, ed, and alfa as co-RD's, (for the children). When darren cancelled the oct 2015 ec 100 kara and ed acted mystified why it was cancelled. A side note: Ed had dreams of starting a "coaching business"* and people he was "coaching" out of the goodness of his heart who had to raise funds for hus friend kara's 100 mile clun charity to enter the race he was "coaching" them for were going to make ec 100 their first ultra. Ed kara and alfa put on the ec 100 as new co-rd's in october of 2015 and the show went on. In addition during this time and separate from ec 100 or the other links, Ed also was trying to raise donations for his friend kara's charity "the 100 mile club kids" for every race he ran in the fall of 2015. This was a separate asking for donations enterprise. That fund on a fundraising site got to around $3200.00 usd, his goal was $10,000 usd, for the children, the children.
Darren may have:
-Been in on a lot and developed a conscience and got out
-Had no idea about it while involved and got out as soon as he found out more about these folks
-Or, still be involved just more quietly. Will find out.
*The stage an event ("ec 100", "race across the usa", "run with us america", "24 hour run for kids" and others those 4 are just the events associated with 100 mile club alone), is another fundraising game in addition to the "endurance feats and ask for donations" games, the books games, the speaking engagement games, the "coaching" games, and so forth.
