98: Six-Day Race Part 6: Weston vs. O’Leary (1875)

By Davy Crockett In 1875, Edward Payson Weston was the most famous ultrarunner (pedestrian) in the world. Like a heavyweight boxing champion dodging his competition to keep his crown, he avoided repeated challenges to race against the up-and-comer, Daniel O'Leary of Chicago, Illinois. The two were the most famous American athletes in 1875. During August 1875, it was announced in New York City that plans were unfolding to hold “a grand international pedestrian tournament” in October that would include a six-day race with $1,000 going to the winner. It was hoped that all the great pedestrians including Weston and O'Leary would compete. Unfortunately, that race never unfolded, but Weston and O'Leary would soon battle head-to-head, not in New York City, but on O'Leary's turf in Chicago.

O'Leary's men had approached Weston offering $500 extra to cover his expenses. It was just too much money for Weston to resist, potentially about $140,000 in today's value. The venue would be in the massive new Interstate Exposition Building in Chicago. The building, measuring 800x400 feet, had opened in 1873, just two years after the Great Chicago Fire. It was rented with promises of receiving 15% of gross gate receipts. The announcement created great excitement across the country. To many at the time, it was similar to the dream matchup between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier in 1971, regarded as the biggest boxing match in history. However, there were critics against holding the event. In Ottawa, Illinois it was written, “What excites our wonderment is, who pays the $7,500? What benefit can it be to anybody whether they walk 100 or 1,000 miles in six days. A horse or mule able to walk 600 miles in six days might be worth something, but who cares how many miles Weston or O'Leary can walk in a day or month, so long as they don't kill themselves?” Similarly, in Mobile, Alabama: “Suppose these men had ploughs, wouldn't they add something in this way to the wealth of the world?” Pre-Race Gardner House Weston arrived in Chicago three days before the race with his two black servants and stayed at the luxurious Gardner House, next to the Exposition Building on the Lake Michigan lakefront. It was reported, “He is in good condition and confident of success. O'Leary also is in excellent trim, and confident of victory as his opponent. The contest will no doubt prove very exciting.” Wagering was heavy with Weston being a slight favorite. Exposition Building Map The Chicago Tribune gave a pre-race commentary about the two pedestrians. “O'Leary has made some excellent feats, and has but one failure to his credit, while Weston, with also a good record at times, has a considerable number of bad fizzles on his list of attempts. Both men have before attempted the 500-mile walk, and both have succeeded. O'Leary made the distance in a little over 153 hours, while Weston covered the same ground in ten hours less. However, some doubt was cast on the accuracy of the timing and measurements which resulted.” O'Leary visited Weston and talked over plans for the race. Weston inspected the track and gave his approval. Two separate tracks would be used, the outer six laps to a mile, and the inner, seven laps to a mile. Weston was offered his choice and he picked the inside track. The Start Spectators began to assemble in the building an hour before the start. There wasn't a huge crowd, only about 100 people, and consisted mostly of men interested in sports. A reporter visited O'Leary in his room on the east si...

“What the New Year brings to you will depend a great deal on what you bring to the New Year.” This is a great quote by Vern McLellan. We all have 365 days in a year. The only difference between the successful people and the mediocre is what we do with each day. We all spend every second of every day doing something. Are those activities moving you forward or keeping you where you currently are? Muhammad Ali said: "Don't count the days - make the days count." Jim Rohn said: "Time is more valuable than money.

#129 Quarenta e cinco minutos do segundo tempo e o último Boia de 2021 pinga na área, sozinho e sem goleiro. Todo sólido, todo gás e todo líquido, Bruno Bocayuva organiza o miolo e lança para o avançado João Valente, impávido feito Muhammad Ali, dribla dois SUPers e um longboarder, toca de letra para Júlio Adler, tranquilo e infalível como Bruce Lee, ginga e deixa dois diretores de marketing no gramado e, em gesto, em cheiro, em sombra, em luz, em som magnífico, num ponto equidistante entre o Atlântico e o Pacífico, chuta o esférico para fora - como sempre fez desde o primeiro dia. Esse episodio, surpreenderá a todos não por ser exótico, mas pelo fato de poder ter sempre estado oculto, quando terá sido o óbvio, como esse plagio escancarado da pérola do Caetano - Um Índio, lançada no álbum “Bicho”, abre o lado B de um dos discos mais lindos do bom baiano.

Ben Beard is a writer based in Chicago. He also loves film. He has written about civil rights and Muhammad Ali in the past, but his most recent book is The South Never Plays Itself: A Film Buff's Journey through the South on Screen. Born and raised in the Deep South, Ben has been writing about movies for years. The South Never Plays Itself covers such well-known titles as Birth of a Nation and Cool Hand Luke, but also examines lesser known films such as God's Little Acre and the William Shatner vehicle, The Intruder. And it looks closely at pictures that are perhaps unappreciated, such as Driving Miss Daisy. Ben also talks about his affinity for film critics Roger Ebert and Pauline Kael and how he manages to get writing done while holding down a full-time job.

Mike lost his son to suicide at aged 31 and I had a deep yet painful conversation with him about it.   Mike McCarthy has worked as a journalist in newspapers, radio and television for almost 40 years as a producer, reporter and presenter. His assignments have included the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, terrorist attacks on the Boston marathon, the Canadian parliament in Ottawa and the Manchester Arena in the UK. His range of stories stretches from politics in Washington DC to rioting in Athens, demonstrations in Gaza, floods in the UK and sporting triumphs across Europe.   Mike has interviewed almost all UK prime ministers since the 1970s including Margaret Thatcher and Tony Blair. He also once had the privilege of meeting and interviewing boxing legend Muhammad Ali.   He covered and was deeply affected by the Hillsborough Disaster in which 96 football fans lost their lives in 1989. Mike says: “It made me much more aware of how interested parties can try to form a distorted narrative and that, unless we are very careful, history can be shaped by dishonesty.”   Mike lives in Yorkshire with his wife Glenys. In February this year his son Ross died by suicide aged just 31. In his farewell letter he asked his family to campaign for better mental health services and Mike is trying to honour Ross's request.

“The difference between stage and screen acting is vast, but it's the same root. It's just some of the techniques are very different. I really know theater because that's where I started. I went at it in a very haphazard way. I had a very haphazard approach. It was not orderly at all. I didn't go to a proper school or anything like that. After fooling around in Europe for almost a couple of years, just because I'd gotten out of the army...and didn't really know what to do or how to do it. And so I just went and while there I did some acting, but nothing very remarkable except doing a nightclub with William Burroughs. That was great fun. I did a little bit of studying here or there...Jeff Corey (and at one class in New York) someone said something that helped me a great deal. And then I just learned by doing it.”Harris Yulin has appeared on Broadway in Hedda Gabler, The Price, The Diary of Anne Frank, The Visit, A Lesson From Aloes, and Watch On The Rhine.

Scott Norton is a highly decorated arm-wrestling champion, a New Japan Pro Wrestling champion, and the only wrestler to be a member of the NWO in both Japan and the States. He was also part of the crew (that also included Ric Flair, Antonio Inoki, and Eric Bischoff) that traveled to North Korea in 1995 to wrestle in the “Collision in Korea” PPV, a joint production of New Japan and WCW. Scott shares his personal stories from North Korea from traveling with Muhammad Ali to being taken and questioned by the North Korean Military to the frightening display of missiles and arms at Pyongyang's May Day Stadium during the two-day event. He explains how the whole thing came together in the first place, why he agreed to go, and what he remembers about the various PPV match-ups.
