About this episode

Grayson Murphy is a 2x World Champion and hybrid athlete, competing at the elite level of track, road, and trail running.

  • highlighting sub-ultra trail running

  • sponsorships and brand partnerships in 2023 and beyond
  • self-advocacy and dealing with health issues as an athlete 
  • being more than an athlete: diversifying your passions and pursuits beyond sport
