Who are the most inspirational ultra runners of the year?

Who are your most inspirational ultra runners for 2023?

By Henry Howard

Which ultra runners have inspired you the most during 2023?

It's that time of the year when I put together my list of the top 20 most inspirational ultra runners of the year. But this year — my sixth annual list — is changing.

Due to the increase in inspirational athletes, I’m doubling down. In the next few weeks, I’ll publish one list for the top 20 males and another for the top 20 females. I haven’t quite decided the best way to handle the nonbinary category but they won’t be left out.

Who would you recommend for the 2023 list? Fill out this quick and easy form with your recommendations.

For previous versions of the list, check out, the 2022 compilation here, the 2021 list here, the 2020 version here, this one from 2019 and the first installment in 2018.
