A Tale of Two Moabs with Scott Jenkins The Outdoor Journal Podcast

    • Sports

It’s 2019 and ultrarunner Scott Jenkins has just completed 224 miles out of the 240-mile race which follows the Colorado River as it carves its way through Utah. He’s cruising in 18th place and there are only 16 miles to go. Everything is going to plan. Sleeping would only prolong the agony.  But that’s when the wheels fall off. Scott’s running stride devolves from seasoned amateur to hungry zombie. He doesn’t know where he is and he’s seeing things that aren’t there. Scott finishes (becoming the first Welshman to do so), but his sleep-deprived, feverish spell cost him 10 hours and almost 20 spots on the race ladder.
Two years removed from his delirious finish, Jenkins returns to Moab - the perfect arena for this ultramarathoner’s comeback - and sets a new British record in one of the world’s toughest races. Listen to Jenkins recounts his hallucinatory and gut-wrenching 2019 race.
