I'm curious about east coast ultras. The Appalachians, the Sierras they are not. But they've still got some good eastern standards like Massanutten, Old Dominion, and Vermont. A few others like Grindstone, which looks good, and some flatter river-trail or loop-type ones like Pine Creek Challenge, and Viaduct Trail Ultramarathon. And Umstead. And for shorter stuff, JFK, obviously. I've read a little about eastern ultras saying they're difficult, with very rocky terrain; hopefully that's true. Maybe they'll suffice.
