As the founding editor and publisher of Running Times, Ed Ayres is a pioneer of ultrarunning. The Longest Race is a remarkable journey alongside Ayres as he runs the JFK 50 Mile at the age of 60 in an attempt to set the age-division record.

The Longest Race is a thoughtful reflection on the relationship between the endurance of an individual and the sustainability of a society. Learn more from Ed Ayres in the April edition of The fit knowts Periodical, subscribe here to get your free copy.
