I just took a road trip out to Flushing Meadow Park in Queens. It is day 4 of the 10 day race and the 21st hour of the 6 day race. Really. This is the route
I joined my friend Luis Rios for his 64th mile in 21 hours. Louie said he never looks at the score board. He also said it is not a race, but a meditation.

I am sure Louie would like another visit. This is really a fascinating event. These are the official directions to the race, but Flushing Meadow is huge. Just keep in mind that the course if just north of the lake.
These are the same people who helped me break 4 hours in the marathon. Click here to read what I wrote back in the days of dial up.
Louie ran 314 miles in 6 days. Click here for full results
