Courtney Dauwalter is an Ultra Running queen, a nacho lover, and the individual responsible for changing women’s fashion in the trail running scene. She grew up in Minnesota playing all sorts of sports but fell in love with running and cross-country skiing. She loved that if you work hard and stick with it, you feel better and can go faster and farther. Once she found the ultra running world, these facts became even more apparent! She now lives in Colorado and gets to train on beautiful trails every day. Courtney is a humble and amazing person who does incredible things. Perhaps most notably, she won the Western States in 2018 and the UTMB in 2019. She sets herself crazy challenges like attempting to run 500 miles in the summer of 2020 on the Colorado Trail or running 24 hours straight on the track. In 2020 she was the American champion of the Big’s Backyard, completing 283.33 miles in 68 hours.
