This ultra-marathoner is always decked out in brightly colored, punk-inspired outfits flashing a smile

Vegan ultramarathoner Catra Corbett placed first in the female division of this past week’s 72-hour Beyond Limits Ultra race. The plant-based athlete covered 192 miles, breaking a personal record. The ultramarathon took place over the course of three days at Pathfinder Ranch, a wildlife preserve situated in California’s San Jacinto mountains, just south of Palm Springs. Participating runners repeatedly traversed a two-mile trail loop over 72 hours. According to the website, the Beyond Limits Ultra is considered “one of the most unique ultra events in the southwest.” “This year my plan was to win 1st Female in the 72-hour race and beat my previous 72-hour record which was 174 miles,” the vegan runner told Great Vegan Athletes, declaring that “If you’re not having fun you’re doing it all wrong!” Having fun is clearly an essential part of this endurance challenge, at least for Corbett. In every photo, she can be seen decked out in brightly colored, punk-inspired outfits, flashing a smile.
