Running Ultras To the Edge of Exhaustion chronicles the author’s journey (the training, the races and the people he met along the way) to complete his personal quest of running four major ultramarathons: The JFK 50-Mile Run, Badwater Ultramarathon, Western States Endurance Run and the Comrades Marathon. Runners of all levels of proficiency; from beginner to world class and everyone in-between will enjoy and learn from the experiences shared by Scott Ludwig, who has done them all.
Scott Ludwig has been running every day since November 30, 1978 and he currently has the 32nd longest streak in the United States. He has run 200 marathons, over 800 races, and accumulated over 130,000 miles in his lifetime. He began running ultramarathons early in his running career, his first being a 50-miler in 1982. In time he would run ultras ranging from 31 miles to 135 miles (the Badwater Ultramarathon in 2003, in which he would finish in 6th place). In 2002, Scott ran 129 miles in the U.S. National 24-Hour Championships and won the master’s (age 40 and over) national championship. In 1992 he ran 280 miles in six days, from the west side to the east side of the state of Georgia, to raise money for charity. He lives, runs, and writes in Peachtree City, Georgia.
