Three Things You Will Learn 

1.) What Motivates An Ultrarunner To Sign Up For A Race

Ultramarathons can be anywhere between 26.219 miles to 3100 miles. Which, to most of us, seem scary even by looking at these numbers. Hence, signing up for an ultra race is definitely something that needs courage and a big bucket of motivation. In our interview Cory shares some insights about his transition from marathons to ultramarathons and what makes him sign up for a new race.

2.) How To Prepare For The Toughest Race In The World

Badwater is usually referred to as ‘the world’s hardest ultramarathon’. It is a 135-mile long race that starts 279 feet below sea level in the Badwater Basin located in Death Valley, and ends 8360 feet above sea level at Whitney Portal. As you can imagine it is a race that challenges even the toughest and most experienced runners and so it’s essential to properly train your body for it. Press ‘play’ now for the best tips on preparing for a deathly race, like Badwater!

3.) The Key To Pushing Through An Ultra Race

During an ultramarathon you’re likely to face a number of challenges. When your body is giving up but you still have a long road ahead, you need to find a way to keep yourself going. Listen to this week’s episode to find out how Cory managed to overcome his struggles, like sleep deprivation, during the Badwater Ultramarathon!
