Ultra-Distance Runner

Brian Burk  is our newest Ultra-Distance Runner Ambassador.

brian-burk-05When Brian was completing a remote one-year tour with the US Air Force he developed his passion for the sport.

While stationed at the Thule Air Base in Greenland, otherwise known as the top-of-the-world, Brian ran to get back into shape. He started with a modest 2 mile run and by the end of that year Brian completed a long run of 21 miles and had his sights on a completing his first marathon. Brian ran 1,200 miles that year and has not looked back or stopped running since.

Stateside and with a few more marathons under his belt, Brian ran his first ultra-marathon, the Virginia 24-Hour Ultra Run against Cancer. During that race he fell in love with long distance endurance events. Without a plan he ran 52.5 miles without truly knowing what he was doing. Since that time and with a lot of help and inspiration from the running community, Brian ran races from 5k’s through the 100-mile benchmark. To-date Brian has accumulated two 100 mile races, sixteen marathons, forty ultras including seven 24 hour events.
