Here are my picks for North American Ultrarunners of the Year and Ultra Performances of the Year:
- Female: Courtney Dauwalter
- Male: Jim Walmsley
Note: Some say it was a weak year for male UROY, as Jim had only 2 ultra wins and a DNF at UTMB, but he was/is clearly the top male ultrarunner in North America. I actually applaud Jim for maintaining a reasonable race schedule.
- Female: Camille Herron - Desert Solstice 24-hour (162.9 miles)
- Male: Jim Walmsley - Western States 100 course record (14:30)
I really think Camille's 24-hour record will stand for generations. It is an insane record.
