Ultrarunner, Scott Jurek, set to inspire visitors with a speaking session at the Boston Outdoor Expo

The Boston Outdoor Expo is thrilled to announce that ultrarunning legend, Scott Jurek, will be speaking at Boston Outdoor Expo 2024.

The highly anticipated show will launch this April, 27-28 2024 at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center. The consumer expo will welcome thousands of outdoor enthusiasts and aims to provide visitors with gear, advice and experiences to inspire them.

Named one of the greatest runners of all time, Scott Jurek has become a living legend.  He has claimed victories in nearly all of ultrarunning’s elite trail and road events including the historic 153-mile Spartathlon, the Hardrock 100, the Badwater 135-Mile Ultramarathon, and—his signature race—the Western States 100-Mile Endurance Run, which he won a record seven straight times.

Scott has also taken the running world by storm with his 2015 Appalachian Trail speed record, averaging nearly 50 miles a day over 46 days—and the United States all-surface record in the 24-Hour Run with 165.7 miles: 6.5 marathons in one day.

Jurek is set to inspire visitors at the Boston Outdoor Expo with his remarkable resilience, determination, and passion for ultrarunning. Drawing from his personal journey, he’ll offer insights, valuable tips, and firsthand experiences on overcoming obstacles and pushing limits in the pursuit of athletic excellence. Throughout his session, he will shed light on the mental and physical challenges he’s encountered throughout his career, encouraging others to strive for greatness in their own pursuits.

The Inspiration Stage will include speakers such as Kimber Cross, Mirna Valerio, Rudy Reyes, Scott Jurek, Sir Ranulph Fiennes and more. Visitors will also have the opportunity to shop from a wide range of renowned brands including popular names such as Altra, Brooks, Hoka, CLIP, CB Sports, DryFoxCo, Iceebar, Runur, LiteAF, Stoke Therapy, USWE and more.
