KARL MELTZER

Karl Meltzer 4.jpg

Karl 'Speedgoat' Meltzer has won more 100-mile races than anyone on Earth. Karl was the 2006 ultra runner of the year and holds the all-time winner title for the Hardrock 100, with 5 Hardrock wins under his belt. Hailing from New Hampshire, where he adventured on the Appalachian Trail as a kid, he moved to Utah's Wasatch Mountain Range in 1990, where he discovered and fell in love with ultra trail running. He has since completed 125 ultra marathons and continues to set new records - most recently on his beloved Appalachian Trail, running 2,190 miles in only 45 days, 22 hours, and 38 minutes, over 10 hours faster than the previous course record set by Scott Jurek. 'The Speedgoat' has become a legend in the ultra community,  completing many of the lengthiest runs in the United States. He’s been a dedicated online ultra-running coach since 2007, putting the knowledge he’s gained in nearly three decades of elite experience in service of aspiring ultra runners around the country.

Karl is sponsored by: Hoka One One, Red Bull, Black Diamond, and Drymax.
