Lou D’Onofrio’s Neighborhood Quarantine Ultra

The weather was great the weekend of May 9th — great to go long.  I ran a neighborhood quarantine ultra event as part of three virtual races: Dawn to Dusk to Dawn 24 hour, Athletic Equation Social Distance Ultra, and the Yeti 24 hour Challenge.

We loved making my run a community event that exposed first hand many of our neighbors to ultrarunning.  It was great to enjoy the run with so many people while keeping physical distance. I was happy that it provided inspiration and positivity during these challenging times. 

Although I didn’t race it, I was pleased with a 106.44 mile result along with 4,728 feet of ascent, by covering a 1.5 mile neighborhood road loop for the full 24 hours.
