Frank DeLeo - ULTRA HALL OF FAME

Club icon Frank DeLeo will be inducted into the Broadway Ultra Society Hall of Fame this Saturday August 2nd prior to the Joe Kleinerman 12 hour ultra.

Frank's remarkable running history and longevity is probably known by few club members. Below is a sampling of his accomplishments in the world of Ultras (anything above the marathon distance). Mind you, these ultras have been laced with a myriad of marathons, and other races throughout the past 3 decades.
