16. Justin Houck

Justin’s only run a couple of ultras, but he’s set his sight on being one of the best runnersin the country. His first 50k he broke the course record. His second, he got his butt handed to him, and his third, he beat some top elites and marked his time right behind Sage and Anton’s. Now he’s got his eyes set on TheNorthFace Endurance Challenge in San Francisco, where he figures he’ll have to throw in some 5 minute miles towards the end to stay competitive. Justin is new to the sport, learning as he goes, and will be exciting to watch. Keep your eye on this guy.
