Have you ever heard of Zach Miller? If you follow the world of ultrarunning, his name is surely familiar to you. But if you’re not acquainted, let me introduce you to one of the most fascinating and inspiring figures in contemporary trail running.

An Incredible Victory and a Dream to Achieve

It all began in 2013 when Zach Miller burst onto the ultrarunning scene with a surprising and extraordinary win at the JFK 50 Mile Race. Since then, he has competed in some of the world’s biggest international mountain ultramarathons, but one shines brighter than the rest in his sights: the Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc (UTMB®). Since leading for most of the 100-mile race back in 2016 only to crash in the final 15 miles, Zach has returned year after year in his attempt to become the first American man to win (and in the 2023 edition where I participated in the feat, Jim Walmsley succeeded, Zach came second).

Zach’s past is unique and fascinating, shaped by experiences that have contributed to forging his determination and resilience. Discover how his life journey has ignited the inner flame that drives him to always give his best, both in life and on the mountains.
