How hard is an ultramarathon?

How hard is an ultramarathon?

“Just because the average pace is much slower than something like a road marathon, doesn't mean it's easy running. Not only are most ultras more challenging in terms of terrain and climbing/descending, maintaining any pace is difficult when you've been at it for eight hours, no matter what the surface.”

Are ultra runners skinny?

Ultra runners are rail-thin, outfitted with gels, sports drinks, and other supplies, and look like they're built to run for miles without so much as breaking a sweat.
