Going the Distance

Record #:
The Umstead 100, Raleigh's very own ultramarathon held in April, is a 12.5-mile loop around Umstead State Park that participants repeat eight times. The terrain varies from gravel and dirt paths to a little bit of pavement along hills and trails. It's a race often undertaken by runners making the leap from fifty to one hundred miles, and that leap takes preparation, or at least a different mind-set.
