Editor’s Note: Climber Cedar Wright shared his story of ultrarunning the Moab Red Hot 55k as a member of the The North Face athlete team.
As a climber on The North Face athlete team, I’ve had the unique opportunity to get to know fellow ultrarunner and skier team members who I would never otherwise have met. To me, the skiers always seemed kind of super human. But as far as the ultrarunners were concerned, I just wasn’t that impressed. I mean… it was “just running.”
