More than 100 competitors ran or walked in intervals for up to 47 hours during the 3rd Annual 2020 Conquer the Wall Challenge, held last weekend at the West Williamson Floodwall. Tug Valley Road Runners President Alexis Batausa said one runner, 40 year-old Sean O’Connor from New Jersey, amassed a course record 79 laps, 161 miles in the 47-hour timeframe. Batausa said 39 competitors — which included himself — totaled more than 100 miles during the weekend race. He said the number of runners/walkers who amassed 100 miles or more not only represented a record for the wall challenge, which is West Virginia’s first ultra-marathon, but also for the state itself.
