Zandy Mangold is an ultramarathon runner, running coach and high-spirited guy who has completed — and in some cases won — some of the world’s toughest endurance races. Zandy shares experiences running the Spartathlon (153 miles), Western States (100 miles), Badwater (135 miles) and the Atacama Crossing (155 miles). In his coaching life, Zandy works with people of all ability levels at any stage of their running journey. On the side, Zandy has a business baking plant-based cookies.

Even if you aren’t an endurance athlete, you’re likely to gain something from this episode and be drawn in by Zandy’s worldview.

Zandy is organizing a 10K race in association with the upcoming Beacon Bonfire festival on Nov 4-5. The Beacon Bonfireball 10K will take place the morning of Nov 4 and is sure to be a great excursion for both competitive and casual runners. Register here.
