The Evolution of Ultra

Every two months my local running club, the Sugarloaf Mountain Athletic Club, puts out a sweet newsletter: The Sugarloaf Sun. For the past four years, I've been lucky enough to have the role of editor, helping shepherd each issue to publication. We've got a deep well of talented and generous writers and artists who contribute regularly, and honestly, although it takes a bit out of me each time, it's very rewarding.

The latest issue adhered (loosely) to the theme of running ultramarathons, and specifically the evolution of ultras over the years from simply being "any footrace longer than a marathon" to all sorts of crazy events that big-mile runners can think up to play with. A pdf copy of the issue can be read here on the Sugarloaf Mountain Athletic Club's website, and links to other past issues can be found here.
