"Scott Jurek has been one of the most dominant ultramarathon runners in the world, winning many of the sport's most prestigious races multiple times, including the Hardrock Hundred (2007), the Badwater Ultramarathon (2005, 2006), the Spartathlon (2006, 2007, 2008), and the Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run (1999-2005). In 2010, at the 24-Hour World Championships in Brive- la-Gaillarde, France, Jurek won a silver medal behind Ryōichi Sekiya and set a new US record for distance run in 24 hours with 165.7 miles.[2] Jurek has been meat free since 1997 and vegan since 1999."
