Elite ultra running athlete, Scott Jurek, will be in Austin, Texas on Monday, June 18 for a group fun run (5km-ish) and chat/book-signing for his new book – Eat & Run.
Some of you may recall when Scott and other ultra Goliaths laced them up for a special Rocky Raccoon 100 back in 2011.
If you don’t know about Scott, well, he is one accomplished athlete.
Here are just a few of his higher profile accomplishments in this sport:
- United States record holder for 24-hour distance on all surfaces – 165.7 miles
- Won Spartathlon (152 mile race from Athens to Sparta, Greece) three consecutive years
- Won Hardrock 100
- Won Western States 100 seven consecutive years
- Won Badwater twice
Of course, if you have read Born to Run, Scott is weaved within the storyline.
Here is a pretty cool video with Scott.

Although I have yet to read Eat & Run, from looking at some of the descriptions and table of contents, it appears to contain his journey as an elite athlete and his transition to the vegan lifestyle. Looks like a variety of recipes as well inside. Sounds like an interesting read.
