RE: JFK 50 Miler record crushed 5:21:29
Jim hardly has any sponsors. Look at how many people were there for his Grand Canyon run.

If the prize money at ultras was the same (or more) as at the major marathons…then Eliud Kipchoge and lots of other Kenyans would come over and really destroy the records. What happens when a guy with a 26:49 10K best shows up well trained for an ultra?….. Uh oh.


Is there some money at Comrades?
I remember the Russian marathon record holder, Dr. Leonid Shvetsov. He was also the record holder for both directions at Comrades, until one of his records was recently broken. He is now back in Russia 'coaching' runners.

He has quite an interesting past history in Albuquerque, New Mexico:
