Scott Jurek: Vegan Phenom

Source: Daily Mail

Check out a new video (sent to me courtesy of Double Forte) released by Team CLIF Bar ultrarunner and 7-time Western States 100 champion, Scott Jurek, where he talks about racing, winning, running with the Tarahumara and coming to terms with what running means to him.

About Scott Jurek:

In 1999, he took the lead of the Western States Endurance Run, a 100-mile traverse over the old Gold Rush trails of the California Sierra Nevada. He won that race seven years in a row, setting a course record along the way. Twice he won the Badwater Ultramarathon, a 135-mile “jaunt” through Death Valley. He triumphed in the 153-mile Spartathlon in Greece three times. And he was one of the elite runners who traveled to Mexico to run with the Tarahumara Indians, as profiled in the runaway bestseller Born to Run. His accomplishments are nothing short of extraordinary, but that he has achieved all of this on a plant-based diet makes his story all the more so.

In his new book, Eat and Run, Scott Jurek opens up about his life and career—as an elite athlete and a vegan—and inspires runners at every level. Scott’s book is set for release on June 5.

I’ve requested a review copy, so hopefully I’ll have a post up about it very soon.
