Jeff Colt

Trail Runner

Jeff was born and raised in New Hampshire, chasing his older brother and sister around the White Mountains on skis and foot. He has competed in distance running since he was 7 years old and started exploring longer runs while working in the Appalachian Mountain Club’s White Mountains hut system. By 2015, his adventures regularly looked like trail marathons in the mountains and a friend told him about some ultra races that would be cool to check out.

He moved to Carbondale, CO in 2016 and began competing in ultramarathons internationally. Jeff’s daily motivation comes from scouring maps, looking for new sections of trail or revisiting a favorite trail with a new approach. He balances competitive running with work as the Brand Director for ZipFit, a proud corporate partner of POW. He rounds out life cooking great food with my community in the Roaring Fork Valley, ski touring, and biking around the Elk Mountains. Jeff thinks his greatest competitive strength is his ability to focus on positive thinking, hoping that strength translates to inspiring communities to take action.
