Is the impossible, possible? How do you tap into the vast potential of the body and mind?
Join ultramarathon legend and New York Times bestselling author Scott Jurek as he takes you on a journey of the body, mind and soul, while setting a speed record on the Appalachian Trail in 46 days. Discover how to explore the limits of your own body and mind to achieve the seemingly impossible.
Named one of the greatest runners of all time, Scott Jurek has become a living legend. He has claimed victories in nearly all of ultrarunning’s elite trail and road events including the historic 153-mile Spartathlon, the Hardrock 100, the Badwater 135-Mile Ultramarathon, and—his signature race—the Western States 100-Mile Endurance Run, which he won a record seven straight times. Scott has also taken the running world by storm with his 2015 Appalachian Trail speed record, averaging nearly 50 miles a day over 46 days—and the United States all-surface record in the 24-Hour Run with 165.7 miles: 6.5 marathons in one day.
