Rookie of the Year

The Mad City 100K - 2007


If the challenge of an event can be measured in inverse proportion to the number of entrants it draws, this inaugural 62.1-mile footrace, conceived by veteran ultramarathoner and race organizer Tim Yanachek, was the most grueling endurance test of the year. Of the 50-something individuals who stepped up to the Vilas Park starting line on that frigid April morning to vie for a spot on the U.S. national 100-kilometer team, a mere 30 survived all 10 spectator-friendly laps of the course around Lake Wingra via the UW Arboretum, Nakoma and Monroe Street neighborhoods.

Of the 25 relay teams that started, 24 finished a rate that suggests a) misery loves company; b) it's easier to run 100 kilometers if you divide the distance among friends or co-workers, adopt an inspirational name such as Team Crybaby or Weakened Warriors and dress up in funny costumes; or c) both of the above. Mark your calendars: Registration for the second annual Mad City 100K (www.madcity100k.com), scheduled for April 12, will open by Jan. 1 and close April 9.
