Ed Ettinghausen, known in most circles at ‘The Jester,’ tonight set the World Record for Most 100 Milers in a calendar year with his 37th of 2014. He broke the old record held by the great Liz Bauer who had accumulated 36 of them back in 2012.
The record tying and record breaking runs took place in Bonita, California at a small event titled aptly Jester’s World Record Run. He finished #37 with a time of 36 hours 17 minutes.
Finisher’s of JWRR received a belt buckle with, you guessed it, the Jester’s face on it.
The Jester still has plans to run three more 100 milers in 2014 to finish the year with 40.
Congrats to Ed and his wife Martha (super crew) on this impressive accomplishment.
