Prolific ultrarunner earns USA Track & Field Phidippides Award by continuing to inspire since overcoming a horrific accident that nearly left her crippled.

New York, NY, November 15, 2013 --(PR.com )-- Prolific ultraunner Anne McClain from Pittsburgh, PA has been awarded the very prestigious USA Track & Field Phidippides Award for 2013. Anne has become an extremely accomplished and inspiring athlete since overcoming a horrific accident that nearly left her crippled. Throughout the 2013 race season, Anne has successfully finished competitively in multiple USA Ultrarunning National Championships, ranging from 50 miles to 24 hour endurance events.

The Phidippides Award, inspired by the historic masters runner, is an award available to dedicated members of USATF (over the age of 40) who earn points through their participation in road races throughout the year. Athletes who earn enough points will be recognized by USATF with a personalized Gold, Silver, or Bronze plaque.
