My Name is Cole Crosby and I am a proud “Beast Coast” athlete, multi-day runner, and US snowshoe national team member that currently resides in the small little state of Rhode Island. I love to say that the “biggest things come in the smallest packages” and Rhode Island continues to be an incredible training ground for all of my endurance pursuits. From the hills to the sea, the Providence area is a true gem of the East Coast for runners to explore and has been a big boost to my success.
After my 197 mile run record across New Jersey in January 2021, I have been motivated to take on some of the longest and most extreme ultra endurance challenges in the world. My current racing passions are in expedition-style multi-day ultra events such as the Marathon Des Sables, the 4 Deserts Race Series, and the Ultra X world tour. I also see events such as 200 milers like: Cocodona 250, Bigfoot 200, Tahoe 200, Moab 240 and Tor Des Geants as events I can thrive in. As an avid snowshoe runner, I will continue to push my limits in both arctic events such as the Iditarod Trail Invitational, Arrowhead 135 as well as growing snowshoe ultra running and hopefully elevating the sport of snowshoe into a winter Olympic sport.
My enthusiastic drive for living with no limits is something I continue to build upon here on the East Coast trails and roads.
