Jared Hazen is an ultra runner and coach based in Flagstaff, AZ. He still holds the second fastest time ever at Western States (14:26) when he placed second behind Jim Walmsley in 2019. He’s been a competitive runner for the last 15 years, including first place finishes at Lake Sonoma 50 Miler, JFK 50 Mile and the Oil Creek 100.

In this episode we discuss:

  • His quick transition from running in high school to ultra stardom
  • What his training and daily routines look like
  • His experience dropping out at Western States and what he learned from it
  • Goals for 2022 and beyond
  • What he’s grateful for at this time
