Ultra runner Courtney Dauwalter recently won the Moab 240 Mile Endurance Run outright by more than 10 hours. A race that involves anywhere from three to five days on course and traces a giant, single loop of 240-miles with 29,467 feet of elevation gain and descent through the canyons and mountains of eastern Utah. Courtney completed the race in two days, 9 hours, and 59 minutes. The Colorado resident grew up in Minnesota where she competed on the cross-country, track and Nordic-ski teams at her high school – she was an All American for Nordic – and went on to race for the Division I Nordic team at the University of Denver. She has been trail racing for six years now but it was just last year that she captured the attention of the sport with wins at Colorado’s Run Rabbit Run 100 and Arizona’s Javelina Jundred 100K (overall), where she broke both the women’s course record and the overall course record. Four months later in February this year, she set a new American women’s 24-hour record at the Riverbank One Day 24-Hour race in California, running 155.4 miles.
