Bowman and Wolf named #4 2018 UltraRunners of the Year


Dylan Bowman

Dylan Bowman is ranked fourth in the Ultra Runner of the Year balloting for 2018. “DBo” had an outstanding year, winning two major international races, Ultra Trail Mt. Fuji in Japan and Tarawera 100K in New Zealand. He also placed a very close second at Sur les Traces des Ducs de Savoie (TDS), the 119km race in the UTMB series. In what was almost certainly the most thrilling race finish of 2018, Bowman finished a minute and two seconds behind the winner, and 41 seconds ahead of third place after more than 13 hours of racing (and two lead changes in the last five miles). After several years of living in the San Francisco Bay Area, he and his wife Harmony moved to Aspen, Colorado during the year. Photo: Red Bull
