Event Statistics:
31 Starters (22 men, 9 women)
14 Finishers (7 men, 7 women)
In his blog, Phil also gives unofficial finisher status to:
"Ray Krolewicz, true to form, despite arriving more than an hour late due to car trouble on the ride up from Georgia, kept on running, despite missing aid station closings and course cutoffs, resting as he felt like it, swimming in the ocean as he felt like it, and finished unofficially in 35:35:55."

The New York Ultra Running community owes Phil (and all the runners, pacers, crews, volunteers and supporters) a hardy ¡¡THANK YOU!! for proving this extraordinary run could be accomplished in the parks and streets of New York City.

...and we hope that even more of us get the opportunity to participate NEXT YEAR!

Initial planning information from the Race Director (NYUR Grand Prix Champion Phil McCarthy):
The Great New York 100 Mile Running Exposition will take place on Saturday, June 23, starting and finishing in Times Square. It is a single 100-mile loop through Manhattan, the Bronx, Queens and Brooklyn that explores the parks, greenways, waterways, beaches and bridges of the city. Despite the overblown title, it will be small (no more than 25 runners) and low-key with minimal aid. Any interested runners can contact me, as well as those willing to pace runners at night, and anyone who'd be willing to spend a few hours at an aid station helping these folks out. Email me at phildillny@yahoo.com for more details, or find me on facebook.

Important Notes:
  • Because of the difficulty in coordinating the course logistics, participation in this inaugural race will be by INVITATION only.
  • The race committee reserves the right to accept or reject any entry application.
  • The actual course for this event is currently being tested and confirmed.
  • A final map, including the confirmed Start and Finish location, will be available soon.
  • The date (Saturday, June 23, 2012) is definite, with a starting time of 5AM.
  • This race will require many experienced volunteers to coordinate aid stations and checkpoints, and to assist runners as pacers. Please contact Phil if you would like to help.
  • More details about this event (including application procedures) will be posted on this site as soon as they are available.
