Zac Marion – Ultra Runner

Running to me is an opportunity to escape my everyday life as a doctoral student. I enjoy that more primal instinct and free spirit that resides when I’m released into the mountains. The push into ultra distance running was my opportunity to extend those experiences as long as possible. I fell in love with not only the distances of ultras, but also the culture of the community. I dedicated 2014 to learning how to run 100’s which lead me to my first 100 mile win at Bryce Canyon 100 and then a quick turnaround win at Ouray 100 a month and half later. I’ve been fortunate to maintain staying on podium through my 2015 season, pushing myself harder than ever. I’m excited for the adventures that await for 2016 and having Trail Butter help fuel me through them all.
