Ultrarunning's March Madness
Great news for fans of ultrarunning: Starting Thursday at 6:00 A.M., there will be 84 straight hours of live coverage of the Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc (UTMB), one of the most prestigious ultramarathons in the world, on ultratrail.tv. Live coverage of ultras is usually limited to—at best—updates on Twitter, so it will be really interesting to see how this goes. With an entire weekend's worth of coverage, this is sort of like the ultrarunning fan's version of March Madness. A quick preview of the race is above. My favorite video of UTMB (yes, sadly I have watched enough UTMB videos that I have a favorite) is below.
