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.
