Chad Weller embodies passion, perseverance, and a competitive drive like few others. Not only does Chad compete in rigorous athletic events, running up to 100 miles at a time, but he also has proven results, winning his age group in the Florida Everglades 50-Mile in 2014. Growing up, Chad participated in a diverse array of sports, from soccer to baseball to basketball, yet never liked running.
. Nutrition and Business Major at The Ohio State University, Chad took an early morning running class, and given the size of the campus grounds, began running between classes. Second, following college, Chad moved to Milan, Italy, where he worked as a model. Exploring the historic city on foot, he reconnected with running, taking in the city the way he had The Ohio State campus.
Returning to the US, Chad made Miami, Florida his home, and ran his first race: a 5K. Rekindling his competitive spirit, he realized how good running made him feel, and soon after completed a series of 10k races. Chad then entered half-marathons, followed by a 20k in his native state of Ohio. The natural progression led Chad to full marathons, until in 2010 he completed in his first 50k race in San Francisco, CA.
Chad has pursued wilderness-based ultra-marathons, seeking out destination races around the world. In fact, Chad has now competed in over 200 races, not only in the US, but also in Thailand, France, Guatemala, Argentina, and Chile.
