Wilmington man runs 100 miles backwards for charity


Tracey McMullen trained along with the Jingle Bell 5k at Wrightsville Beach. McMullen ran  backwards for 25 miles for four consecutive days for a fundraiser in December 2020 for a new running complex for the Community Boys & Girls Club.

Running for a cause: Tracy McCullen, a Wilmington designer, is doing it again.

McCullen will do his second annual 100-mile backwards run, 100 Ultra 4 Kids, to raise $100,000 for the Community Boys & Girls Club of Wilmington.

He holds the record as the only person in the United States to run an ultra-marathon backwards, second in the world.

More:100 Miles. Running. Backward. Wilmington man ready to help Boys & Girls Club

The funds raised will be used to build a “track of optimism and field of dreams,” a unique, interactive fitness playground for all ages in the Northside community. The track and field, slated to open in spring of 2025 for the Community Boys & Girls Club and will also be available to the public, will provide a sensory experience while promoting a healthy lifestyle and positive mindset.
