Based in Durango, Colorado, Paul Hamilton doesn’t have to look far for perfect places to train. The beautiful mountain scenery and miles of trails are an ideal location for the ultrarunner to train for some of the most challenging mountain races in the world. Paul ran his first ultra in 2012 and he’s been hooked ever since. His resume includes winner of the Run the Rut 50k and Telluride Mountain Run, and boasts podium finishes at the Quad Rock 50 Mile, Speedgoat 50k and Golden Gate Dirty Thirty. When he’s not running on the trail, he’s most likely either backpacking or biking on one.
