The “Ted 100” probably needs no introduction. We in the ultra community all know the accomplishments of the honoree. Ted Corbitt also had participated in many Broadway Ultra Society (BUS) events; his last was a 24-hour in his name in 2003. He was 84 at the time and completed 68.9 miles. The “Ted 100” would be a celebrated way to pay tribute to Ted Corbitt’s 100th birthday. We at BUS are greatly thankful to the Village of Valley Stream in Long Island to provide us this opportunity. It is a wonderful venue in many ways. The loop distance is just right; not too short or long. The course is a flat pedestrian path circling a stream and a lake. And it is also well-lit and guarded by Security. The Staging Area will be the Pool Building right on the course loop with ample facilities and a large lounging area.
This will be the second running of the “Ted 100”. The first was in 1994 at Juniper Valley Park in Queens, NY won by Roy Pirrung. This year’s edition will be presented again by BUS on Saturday, September 7 at Hendrickson Park in Valley Stream, LI starting at 9:15 AM, and will be part of the New York Ultra Running (NYUR) Grand Prix Series for 2019. The Race Director asks that you enter on this page through Ultra Signup (with no added fee). The event will be two races in one: a 100-kilometer and 100 miles, but NOT separate. There only will be one start, and if you do go on to 100M, you still will be recorded with an official time and place for the 100K. You DO NOT have to declare what distance (100K or 100M) you are running.
The check-in area will be at Arthur J Hendrickson Pool Building located on Merrick Road between Fletcher Avenue and N. Franklin Avenue. Other details are the following:
