Air Force Captain Brian Dumm Wins 2010 JFK 50-miler (Herald Mail)

The JFK 50-miler, the nation's oldest ultramarathon, was established by John F. Kennedy in the early 1960's to challenge military personnel to the "50 miles in 20 hours" standard set by Teddy Roosevelt for the enlisted to maintain their commissions. So it seems fitting to have a Captain in the Air Force, 27-year-old Brian Dumm from Colorado Springs, CO, bring home the win this year with his amazing 5:52:02 debut.

You can read a full story at the Herald Mail (with video!), and check the results on the JFK Web site. Congrats to all who finished!
