Dr. Scholl finishes the Wasatch 100!

Dr. Scholl, who is an accomplished ultramarathoner as well as Orthopedic Sports Medicine Surgeon, completed a long-standing goal of finishing the Wasatch Front 100 Mile Endurance Run this year.

Dr. Scholl has previously run many trail ultras in the 50 mile distance, as well as Rim-to-Rim-to-Rim crossings of the Grand Canyon, and this is his first 100-mile effort! Dr. Scholl has called this race “…a bit of everything,” since the race included running in the day and night, the heat and the cold, with friends and solo, and brought laughter and energy contrasted with heavy fatigue. “I never felt like my finish was in jeopardy, but there were points I really had to dig deep and work through the sheer exhaustion,” said Dr. Scholl about his effort across the 100-mile course. The race includes 26,882 feet of uphill and 26,131 feet of downhill as it stretches along the Wasatch Mountains from Kaysville to Midway, Utah. Dr. Scholl says that he felt stronger than he expected at the finish and is already working on strategies for a faster time next year.
