Brendan Leonard

Filmmaker and writer Brendan Leonard never considered himself a runner, and definitely not an ultrarunner. But a few years ago, he entered his first race, and found that ultramarathons have a lot in common with work—which he’s no stranger to. In 2017, he entered his first 100-mile race along with his friend Jayson Sime, and their experience became the film How to Run 100 Miles.
