Description

." . . open your eyes to what is possible." --Chris Ward, host of Like a Bigfoot podcast

Run 200 miles? "How do you even prepare for something like that? What's it even like? And what is wrong with you?" Ultra-marathons have become extremely popular over the last decade with events previously having only a handful of participants to now selling out and some having to go to a lottery system. The popularity of 50Ks, 50 milers, 100Ks, and 100 milers have shown that the human body is capable of astonishing physical and mental feats. Join ultra-marathon author Ryan Chukuske as he describes what it's like to take on the Bigfoot 200. Follow along as he provides a narrative tale of competitors, crews, pacers, volunteers, and race director Candice Burt. From workout plans prior to the event, tales of awesomeness during the challenge, struggles, physical and mental breakdowns, hallucinations, the Bigfoot 200 changes the lives of all involved.
