Jeff 'Bronco Billy' Browning was ranked one of 2016’s top two ultra runners of the year, earning the title with a Western States 100 & Hardrock 100 fastest combined time.
Jeff has finished over 100 ultra marathons in his career, including winning the 2018 Hardrock 100, and has set multiple course records throughout the years. Jeff grew up roaming free on his family’s 700-acre farm in Missouri, and he’s been running ever since. He resides in Logan, Utah with his wife, three kids, four chickens, a dog, two cats, and their organic garden. Nutrition and hands-on tweaking of running gear are two of his areas of expertise. He lives to explore wild places and fights to protect them, most recently by participating in a 106 mile run through Chile’s Patagonia National Park to celebrate its opening and spread the word about its conservation. Shifting from mountain biking and climbing, Jeff started running ultras in 2001 and shifted to racing competitively in 2004. He's since racked up 25 ultra wins — including 16 at the 100-mile distance. He's spent 19 years refining his training and racing strategies in ultras. Jeff is passionate about sharing them with others as an endurance running coach.
