Ultra Pharmacist: 5 Questions With UROC Champ Rob Krar

After taking a year off from running, Rob Krar, a native of Canada who calls Flagstaff, Ariz. home, ran the Moab Red Hot 33K , in 2011 and won it. He tried his first ultra less than a year ago, scoring a second-place finish at the Bootlegger 50K last November. That success carried over to 2013, which has been a meaty year for the vegetarian with a huge new rim-to-rim-to-rim record in the Grand Canyon (42 miles, 6 hours, 21 minutes, 47 seconds), a win and new course record at the Leona Divide 50-miler and a second-place finish at Western States , his first time ever running 100 miles. Krar, who is married and works full time as a pharmacist, continued his trail-blazing ways this past weekend. The North Face’s newest sponsored athlete won the 100K (62-mile) Ultra Race of Champions (UROC) in Vail, Colo. in 9:29:00.
