Episode 476: Annie Hughes; Extreme Ultra Running; Moab 240 and Leadville 100 Champion, Recent 3rd Place at Hardrock 100

Annie Hughes is an ultrarunner who just placed 3rd at Hardrock 100. She is an up and coming ultrarunner but has already made a name for herself in the short time that she has been doing it. In 2019, she left her college team to pursue ultrarunning and hasn’t looked back!

Annie lives in Leadville, Colorado and won the Leadville 100 and became the youngest female to ever win that race. She also won the Moab 240. Just last year, Annie placed as the first female and third overall and broke the course record by 14 hours at the Cocodona 250. She then went on to place first female and second overall, setting the course record, and becoming the first woman to finish the High Lonesome 100 in under 24 hours.
