Marshall Ulrich (b. July 4, 1951) defies the ideas of "too old," "too far," and "not possible."
A versatile, world-class extreme endurance athlete, he's an ultrarunner, Seven Summits mountaineer, and adventure racer. Marshall's prolific athletic career has earned him numerous wins, records, and firsts on some of the toughest courses in the world and taken him to the top of the highest mountains, including Mount Everest--all in his forties and fifties.
At the age of 57, Marshall ran 3,063.2 miles across the United States, from San Francisco to New York City, in 52.5 days. His first book, "Running on Empty," is a memoir mostly about the transcontinental run, but it also includes tales and lessons learned from all his athletic pursuits, some painful, some funny, some completely life-changing.
Also a speaker, trainer, and guide with his company, Dreams in Action, Marshall delivers keynotes punctuated by extreme adventure stories and the inspiration to "discover what you're made of--it's more than you think"; leads running camps that serve every level of athlete; and guides expeditions through extreme environments and on the world's great mountains.
