"Ultrarunning" is a whole other sport. I know several people that exist 
in both worlds. The entry-level ultra is 50K, then it goes 50M, 100K, 
100M. Some of my friends do the 100M distance. Now THEY are crazy! :)  
But even they wouldn't fathom double that distance.

If I reach my marathon time goal this weekend (I missed it last time I 
ran one), then a 50K is one of my next goals.
