I just received a newsletter from BUS boss Richie Innamorato, via snail mail.

Most of you have heard that Sri Chinmoy died on October 11 at the age of 76. He was the creator and supporter of many ultra distance events in the NYC area and the world.

Very surprisingly and with great sadness Richie mentions that one of the greatest American runners of all times, generally considered the father of US Ultra Running, Olympic marathoner, designer of course certification standards in the US, friend and inspiration Ted Corbitt is seriously ill.
He’s in a Houston hospital. Unfortunately, I don’t have any further details. Richie requested that you do not call, send mail or e-mails. Just your prayers and thoughts.

who can’t imagine a running world without Ted …
