The Hell Ultra

Everyone who starts the race has to get to the first cutoff at 71 miles in 22 hours. There are two more cutoffs before the finish, which runners have to reach in a minimum of exactly five days. That’s about 60 miles per day, a pace that requires stuffing peanut butter sandwiches in your face on the move and sleeping just enough to prevent yourself from zonking out mid-stride in the middle of the road, which happens.
