Endurance Running with Zach Bitter
Zach Bitter is an American ultra marathon runner. He holds world records for the 100-mile run (track) and the 12-hour run (track). Zach claimed both records with his performance during the Six Days in the Dome event in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on August 24, 2019. His 100-mile time of 11 hours, 19 minutes and 13 seconds, bested Oleg Kharitonov’s 2002 world record by almost 11 minutes, and was more than 20 minutes faster than his own American mark of 11:40:55. After claiming the 100-mile record, Zach continued running for another 40 minutes and upped his own 12-hour distance world record to 104.8 miles, an improvement of more than three miles over the previous mark. Bitter attended the University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point from 2005-2008 and was a member of the Track and Field and Cross Country teams. Zach regularly competes in endurance running events and also coaches other runners and athletes. In this episode we discuss: How and why Zach got into endurance running. His world records, how he achieved them, how he felt when he achieved them. His mindset and discipline. Running nutrition. Running mechanics and technique. Tracking and measuring running.
