Greg Crowther to defend USA 100k title...

Greg Crowther of Seattle, who runs for the Seattle Running Company team, and actually wrote a blog piece about me way back in 1999 at the IAAF World Track & Field Championships in Seville, travels to Madison, Wisconsin this Saturday to defend his title at the 2008 USA 100 km Championships. The championships will be hosted for the second time by the Mad City 100K.

The distance, 100 kilometers, is just over 62 miles, where 37 competitors will run a scenic 10-kilometer course around Lake Wingra ten times, providing support crews and spectators many opportunities to see the athletes during the event.

Crowther will have his work cut out for him as Michael Wardian (Arlington, Va.), makes his first appearance at the 100 km championships. Wardian won the USA 50 km championships last month, setting a championship record of 2:55:05.
