Product Details


“Marshall is The Man. Definitively. His run across America at the age of fifty-seven sealed that distinction forever. He’s living proof that endurance never sleeps, never gets old, never tires. Nothing can stop him, and that gives us all hope, gives us resolve to keep trying.” — Dean Karnazes, acclaimed endurance athlete and bestselling author of Utlramarathon Man

“Marshall and I go way back to the first Eco-Challenge in 1995. An athlete of astonishing grit both then and now, he never fails to push the limits of his sport, no matter what extreme endurance event he’s chosen. Running on Empty tells the story of Marshall’s greatest test: reading it, you get a sense of how tough this man is, but there’s also a bit of Everyman in Marsh. He’s an inspiration to all of us.” — Mark Burnett, Emmy Award-winning producer of Survivor, Eco-Challenge, The Apprentice, Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader, and others

“Riveting—the man has endured more, experienced more, accomplished more than you can imagine. You have to read it to believe it.” — Amby Burfoot, winner of the 1968 Boston Marathon and editor-at-large, Runner’s World

“You can learn from every race, even the ones you read about instead of run yourself. Marshall is a master of mental toughness, an endurance legend, and exactly the kind of example our country needs right now.” — Kara Goucher, American middle- and long-distance runner, Olympian and World Championship medalist

“I’m always secretly envious of guys like Marshall, who run for adventure and cover extreme distances. What goes on inside their heads? How do they keep going, on and on, into the night, for days on end? What do they experience that the rest of us don’t? Running on Empty tells it all, giving a rare glimpse into the world of ultrarunning and into the life of a man who epitomizes his sport’s doctrine of ‘never say quit.’” — Ryan Hall, U.S.A. Olympic marathoner, U.S.A. half-marathon record holder (first U.S. runner in under an hour)

One of America’s greatest living adventurers and an expert without peer in human endurance.” — Christopher McDougall, author of Born to Run

“A powerful memoir … a fine pick for athletes and non-athletes alike.” — Midwest Book Review

“Searing, obsessive honesty …” — The Sydney Morning Herald

“Marshall Ulrich is nothing but a sincere original, so it’s no surprise that his new 295-page hardcover book about his 2008 record-setting run from San Francisco to New York City (Running on Empty: An Ultramarathoner’s Story of Love, Loss and a Record-Setting Run Across America) is of the same authentic, one-of-a-kind ilk.” — Running Times
