The Salt Flats ultras (100 miles, 50 miles and 50K) are run on the salt flats and dirt roads near Wendover, Utah, with a couple of significant climbs and descents. Runners have 14 hours to complete the course.

Wolf, who has been a regular on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, has a new Netflix comedy series premiering May 27 called The Break with Michelle Wolf. Before joining The Daily Show, she wrote and performed on Late Night with Seth Meyers

Her controversial performance at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner included numerous jokes about Trump (who bucked tradition by not attending) and White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. It also included a bit about the recent Southwest Airlines accident in which a passenger was killed, which many considered crossed a line.
