Sage Canaday

The 26-year-old Canaday burst onto the mountain and ultra running scenes last year, turning heads with a dominating win at the Mount Washington Road Race, where he clocked 58:27—the fastest American time in history. He went on to win the White River 50 in course-record time and placed second at the Ultra Race of Champions 100K and top-10 at two world championship events. With his competitive credentials (Canaday is a 2:16:52 marathoner) and off-road adeptness, the Boulder-based Canaday, who now competes for Scott Sports, is poised to become one of the most feared ultra-distance and uphill racers in the world.
