On May 11th, 1974, two runners gathered on the shores of Lake Waramaug, secluded in the foothills of western Connecticut, to begin, what would become, a historic day in the history of ultra-running. Along with a 50 mile race, for the first time ever on an American road, a 100K race was to be held. But to know how these runners found themselves at Waramaug we need to look back several years to the sleepy town of Bethel, CT. On a typical fall day in 1967, the Bethel high school cross country team has just finished their daily run of 3 or 4 miles. While the rest of the team is showering or heading home, two of the runners sneak away for a 15 mile training run, a distance unheard of for high schoolers in those days!
