As a runner, Gil Crumrine draws much of his motivation from his faith in God. The Hagerstown man has made several mission trips to Africa, and recalls that his fastest times in the JFK 50 Mile came after his first trip to the country in 2005. Not only was Crumrine impressed by the number of talented distance runners in countries like Kenya and Ethiopia, but he came to appreciate the people's simple way of life. Crumrine, 58, said he felt like he was honoring the great runners of Africa when he finished the 2005 JFK 50 Mile in 10:48.

In 13 days, about 1,000 people will stand in the square of Boonsboro preparing to attempt what many would consider impossible -- covering 50 miles on foot in a single day.

Elet Hall trained at a downtown Hagerstown parking lot as though he were preparing for a high-stakes game of tag. He leapt up a wall nearly twice his height and vaulted over shorter walls, as though he were being chased or someone else's life were in danger. But as a practitioner of parkour it's all in a day's training.

For those who like to go the extra distance, the JFK 50 Mile ultramarathon has become a wildly popular way to do it. The 47th annual edition of the race, which will be held Nov. 21 in Washington County, reached its maximum number of entries in record time. The entry period opened July 1, and by July 13 it was closed. Last year, it filled in a then-record 23 days. It's the third straight year the race has sold out. "We're four months out, and people have JFK fever already," race director Mike Spinnler said.

Last fall's annual JFK 50 Mile Ultramarathon raised funds for nonprofit organizations through entry fees and sponsorships. The JFK 50 Mile donated $10,000 to the Wounded Warrior Project, a nonprofit organization that assists men and women of the armed forces who have been severely injured during conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan and other locations around the world. The program helps veterans enjoy sports, including skiing, fishing and running. Some of the competitors in the 2008 ultra-marathon individually raised money and awareness for the program.
