UltraRunning Magazine (UR) has added Drymax Sports as the presenting sponsor of their 2021 UltraRunner of the Year (UROY) award. Male and female UltraRunners of the Year, as well as the top 10 frontrunners, will be announced on ultrarunning.com starting on January 10, 2022. More detailed and comprehensive coverage of UROY awards and year-end stats will be featured in the February issue of the magazine.
UROY has been awarded by UR for 39 consecutive years since the magazine was first published back in 1981. After a year off in 2020, UR is pleased to bring back UROY following a great year of racing in 2021.
“I think it’s exciting that Drymax is sponsoring the UROY award. They’ve been really strong supporters of our sport for many years,” said John Medinger, former publisher of UR.
Drymax manufactures technically advanced socks worn by elite ultrarunners including Karl “Speedgoat” Meltzer, Kaci Lickteig, Hayden Hawks, Maggie Guterl and Patrick Reagan.
Independently published and owned by ultrarunners since 1981, UR has long been established as the voice of the sport. With content written by professional coaches, elite athletes, physicians and medical experts, UR is the top resource for ultrarunners across the country.
