The North Face, a global leader in outdoor apparel, equipment and footwear, added Zach Miller and Andrew Miller to its endurance running team, joining the likes of Rory Bosio, Dean Karnazes and Rob Krar.
One of the top ultrarunners in competition today, Zach Miller holds first place finishes at The North Face Endurance Challenge 50 Mile Championship in 2015 and 2016, 2016 Madeira Island Ultra Trail 115km, CCC 101km – making him the first American male to win any race in the UTMB race series, 2014 Lake Sonoma 50 Mile and 2013 JFK 50 Mile. In addition, during the 2014 race series Miller was a member of the US Mountain Running Team, Long Distance Mountain Running Team and the Gold Medal winning US 100km Road World Championship Team.
“I’ve always had a thirst for adventure. This mindset has taken me to six of the seven continents, the biggest and most challenging races in the World, and a simple off-the-grid lifestyle in a nearly 100-year-old log cabin on Colorado’s Pikes Peak. Looking to the future, I am very excited to continue living this philosophy as part of The North Face’s Global Athlete Team,” said Zach Miller.
Andrew Miller made a name for himself in 2016 with a first-place finish at Western States 100, the youngest runner to win the race. He has completed first place finishes at 2016 Western States 100, 2016 and 2015 Georgia Death Race, 2015 Big Horn 100M and 2015 Orca’s Island 50K. Looking forward to 2017, he has planned appearances in Western States 100 and UTMB.
