For Mark Chamley, 60, ultra running is ‘a personal journey’

100 miles in 33 hours

Mark Chamley returned to his Hood River home this week after finishing 117th in the Bear 100. For many running events, 117th place wouldn’t be much to brag about, but simply finishing this 100-mile, high-altitude ultra-marathon is a feat in itself, made even more impressive by the fact that Chamley is 60 years old.
