Bio

Known worldwide as the "Speedgoat", Karl is the winningest 100 Mile runner in the world. His victories span across two decades at the toughest races in the most challenging conditions.

Karl began wearing Drymax in 2008 after a challenging FKT attempt of the Appalachian Trail earlier in the year. Meltzer was sidelined with tendonitis ­ a direct result of altering his running stride to compensate for trench foot, which he developed in the wet conditions of Maine while wearing wool socks. After experiencing the benefits of drymax technology, blisters are now the furthest thing from his mind while running.
