Finding your thing.
Named by TIME magazine as one of the “100 Most Influential People in the World,” Dean Karnazes has pushed his body and mind to inconceivable limits.
Among his many accomplishments, he has run 50 marathons in all 50 US states, in 50 consecutive days. He’s run across Death Valley in the middle of summer, and he’s run a marathon to the South Pole.
His list of competitive achievements includes winning the World’s Toughest Footrace, the Badwater Ultramarathon, and winning the 4 Deserts Challenge— racing in the hottest, driest, windiest, and coldest places on earth.
An ESPN ESPY winner and 3-time recipient of Competitor magazine's Endurance Athlete of the Year award, Dean has served as a US Athlete Ambassador in overseas sports diplomacy envoys to Central Asia and South America. He’s twice carried the Olympic Torch and is a recipient of the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness and Nutrition Lifetime Achievement Award.
A NY Times best-selling author, Dean is a frequent speaker and panelist at many running and sporting events worldwide.
