Marshall Ulrich is an elite extreme endurance athlete. He's also an accomplished speaker, author, trainer, and guide, providing his services through Dreams in Action (DNA) and encouraging others to discover what their made of: he declares with authority, “It’s more than you think.”
Called an “Endurance King” by Outside magazine, he’s finished more than 120 ultra marathons averaging over 125 miles each; climbed to the top of the highest mountains on every continent; and completed 12 expedition-length adventure races.
A four-time winner of the footrace considered by many to be the world’s toughest, the Badwater Ultramarathon, Marshall has also
- reached the Seven Summits, including the peak of Mount Everest, all on his first attempts;
- clocked the third-fastest run across America (3,063.2 miles from San Francisco to New York), about which he wrote his book, Running on Empty;
- crossed Death Valley on foot, in July, a record 23 times, including a self-contained, unaided solo and a “quad” of nearly 600 miles;
- become one of only three people in the world to have competed in all nine Eco-Challenges, adventure races requiring skill in multiple outdoor sports disciplines.
He has raced, climbed, and led expeditions in Antarctica, Argentina, Australia, Borneo, Brazil, British Virgin Islands, Canada, China, Egypt, Eritrea, Fiji, France, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Morocco, Nepal, New Zealand, Russia, South Africa, Switzerland, Tanzania, Tibet, Tunisia, and Vietnam. He also offers running camps for athletes of all levels to learn how to excel in and get the most out of competition and training.
Marshall has raised over $850,000 for various charities, including the Religious Teachers Filippini, a small order of Sisters that do the real work of peace and justice in the world by fulfilling their mission to “Go and Teach.”
