Go The Distance with Scott Jurek, Ultrarunning Legend and Philanthropist

Table of Contents

In this episode, I walk with Scott Jurek in Boulder, Colorado.  Scott is an ultra-running legend whose accomplishments include:

  • Winning the Western States 100 Mile Ultramarathon a record 7 times– in a row!
  • Winning Badwater (a 135-mile suffer-fest through Death Valley) twice– and setting a course record there!
  • Setting a U.S. Record for the most miles run in 24 hours- 165.7 miles!
  • Setting a course record for thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail, from Georgia to Maine!

But Scott is more than an ultramarathoner.  He is extraordinarily generous with his time and talents. And he has worked to support a number of great organizations, including many of our partners like Every Mother Counts, The Nature Conservancy, Achilles International, and The USO.

Big thanks to Scott for sharing his story with us. #EveryMileMatters!
