Read below to find out about just a few of Marshall’s amazing endurance adventures!


Marshall Ulrich (b. July 4, 1951) is an elite extreme endurance athlete, as well as an accomplished speaker, author, trainer, and guide. Called the “Endurance King” by Outside magazine, he’s finished over 128 ultramarathons averaging over 125 miles each; climbed to the top of the highest mountain on every continent, including Mount Everest; and completed 12 expedition-length adventure races, including being one of only three people in the world to compete in all 9 EcoChallege races . At the age of 57, Marshall clocked the third-fastest run across America, about which he wrote his book, “Running on Empty.” A record four-time winner of the Badwater Ultramarathon, after 24 years he still holds the record to the summit of Mount Whitney with a time just under 34 hours for the 146 miles. Marshall has crossed Death Valley on foot, in July, a record 27 times, including a self-contained, unaided solo, a “quad” of nearly 600 miles, and the first-ever self-supported circumnavigation of Death Valley National Park. PRESENTATION: Three Extreme Journeys Extreme athlete Marshall Ulrich takes you from the cold thin air of Mount Everest, to the deadly heat of Death Valley, to a record-breaking and body-breaking run across America, showing what it takes to complete such expeditions, including training, preparation, and diet, as well as the dangers, challenges, and risks he faced. Finally, Marshall shares the extreme lessons he’s learned: it’s about continuing to set goals at any age; it’s about diversifying and trying something new; and, ultimately, it’s about believing that you can do more than you think you can.

Hope to see you there!
