Motivation & Inspiration
Marshall Ulrich has had an extraordinary life as a versatile extreme endurance athlete—ultrarunning icon, Seven Summits mountaineer, and adventure racer— and loves sharing his exploits with fellow travelers. He’s raced, led expeditions or climbed mountains in nearly 30 countries, and visited 30 more, making him a versatile destination speaker. Cutting his teeth running across Death Valley, he’s also climbed Mount Everest, run in the jungles of Borneo, and completed a record-setting run across America. Dubbed the Endurance King, he defies the ideas of “too far,” “too old,” and “not possible.”

Revered among athletes, Marshall is also the author of Running on Empty and Both Feet on the Ground. An acclaimed speaker, he’s lectured on Celebrity, Crystal, the Queen Victoria, Sea Dream, and Viking Ocean cruises, as well as talks to businesses, schools, race expos and professional conferences, including the Royal Geographic Society, Morgan Stanely, and Wilderness Medicine.
