Video Tour of Upcoming JFK 50

This Saturday marks the 45th running of the JFK 50 Mile race in Maryland, a grand enough occasion for Runner's World to produce a really nice six minute video on the event, which covers its history, route, and general ethos. If you don't know much about the race, like me, it's a great primer. Speedster and current 50 mile national trail champ, Michael Wardian, took the event last year in a very quick 5:50 (6:59/mile). He, as well as 2007 women's winner, Anne Lundblad, aren't on the starter's list for 2008, presumably resting ahead of the big money North Face Endurance Challenge Championships Dec 6.
