It has been a week since Jack Denness finished his 12th Badwater ultramarathon. His ability to complete this grueling race at age 75 is beyond incredible. Jack isn’t alone however when it comes to older athletes who have defied the odds.
Below is a video that tells the story of two grandmothers who double as ultramarathon runners. Barb Macklow (age 76) and Vicki Griffiths (age 67) have both completed 100 mile endurance runs.
Take a look as both women share some of their experiences and philosophies.
Thanks to Andy for sharing the video
