THE NOMINATION DEADLINE IS NOVEMBER 30, 2018. More info can be found in the drop-down for "Long Runner Rules" under the "Races" tab in the top toolbar on the CTC website (here's the link: ... and if you check out the Long Runners Wall found in the drop-down under the "Results" tab on the top toolbar (also see link here: ), you can see photos of all the members who have been inducted into the Long Runners division since it was started back in 2012. If you ever thought about seeing YOUR face on The Wall, you have time to qualify until November 30 this year! It's not easy... but a good challenge is never easy! To qualify, you must have completed at least ONE of the following during the 2018 CTC Long Runners season (starting December 1, 2017 and ending November 30, 2018): (1) A marathon in each of the 50 States (lifetime award); (2) a marathon on each of the 7 continents (lifetime award); (3) 100 Marathons (lifetime award); (4) a 50-mile road or trail race (annual award - stage races do not qualify unless one of the days is at least 50 miles); (5) a 100-mile road or trail race (annual award - stage races do not qualify unless one of the days is at least 100 miles, but multi-day ultras DO qualify IF the clock keeps ticking for the duration of the race). There is also a "Special Achievement Challenge" noted in the rules, so check them out. IF YOU HAVE NOT DONE SO ALREADY, you have until November 30, 2018 to submit your nomination to become a new CTC Long Runner or, if you're already a Long Runner, to earn further Long Runner recognition by completing another one of the qualifiers! However, once a CTC Long Runner... always a CTC Long Runner!
