Courtney Dauwalter Ultra-Endurance Athlete
Courtney grew up in Minnesota where her family, coaches, and teammates helped foster a love for competition and endurance sports like cross-country running and nordic skiing. She raced on the nordic ski team at the University of Denver and found herself running a few road marathons post-college. Her entry into distance running snowballed quickly to 50k, 50 mile, and beyond.
Currently, Courtney is an ultra marathon runner living in Colorado. She holds the women's American record for distance run in 24 hours at 159.3 miles, she was the overall winner of the Moab 240 Mile Endurance Run in 2017, and has competed in many ultra marathons around the world. Her curiosity for what the human body and brain are capable of is what keeps her heading out the door every day to train. In 2018, her race schedule includes many races that will continue to test these limits.
