Rob Krar

ENDURANCE ATHLETE


There’s more to Rob than a Triple Crown, plant-based diet, and an iconic beard… like a history of competitive badminton and a newfound love of ski mountaineering. Backyard sports aside though, we can’t help but root for this ultrarunning legend with a penchant for late race moves and stints in the pain cave.
