Scott Jurek’s Top 5 diet tips to optimize your running

For nearly two decades, Scott Jurek has been a dominant force in the grueling and growing sport of ultra-running. Yet, perhaps even more impressive than his extensive list of race victories and course records is the fact that he achieves these astonishing accomplishments of endurance on an entirely plant-based diet.

His outstanding competitive resume includes victories in nearly all of ultra-running’s elite trail and road events, including the historic 153-mile Spartathlon, the Hardrock 100, the Badwater 135-mile Ultramarathon, the Miwok 100K, and—his signature race—the Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run, which he won a record seven straight times. The Washington Times named him one of the top runners of the decade, Runner’s World awarded him a Hero of Running and Ultra-running Magazine named him Ultra-Runner of the Year three times.

In 2010, he set a new US all-surface record in the 24-Hour Run with 165.7 miles—6.5 marathons in one day—for which he was named USA Today’s Athlete of the Week.
