With a rock climbing background and a passion for running, Craig has taken ultra running to a whole new level. Craig’s long adventure runs cover distances beyond 26.2 miles through the mountains. In addition to long distances and beautiful scenery, Craig’s runs include technical and challenging trails that scramble up towering mountain peaks. When he isn’t on one of these exciting and dynamic runs, Craig is a devoted husband and father of four boys and works at a leading software company as an Education Manager here in Utah.
Craig as recently joined up with the sports supplement company, Gnarly Nutrition, to get fueled completely by nature with Gnarly’s all-natural supplement line. Gnarly is all about harnessing your inner strength to push possibilities and achieve more than has ever been possible. Craig has done just that. He took 1st place in the Laramie 100 race, was the 1st person to complete the 96 miles long Zion Double Traverse, and is the 2-time fastest known time holder of the Utah Triple Crown (Utah’s 3 tallest mountains).
Craig on joining the Gnarly Nutrition team, “When seeking out a sponsor, one of the main things I look for is a company who shares the same values that I do. As an endurance running athlete what I value most is pushing myself to my absolute limit in the natural world. When I was first approached by Gnarly I knew immediately that their philosophy was the same as mine, that the product and company story was perfectly in line with how I view my own running and adventures – to find my limits and then push past them. This year I’m excited to see how I push myself to new distances, new heights, and to greater depths. I plan to have Gnarly with me along the way.”
Gnarly Nutrition is excited to have such driven athlete on their team. Brand Manager, Eli Kerr, stated, “Craig Lloyd is the guy that everyone wants to hang out with. We are grateful to have him on our team. He’s happy, energetic, genuinely cares about others and on top of that a great athlete all around. He accelerates in ultra running and we feel we are so in line with Craig as he is constantly seeing to push his limits through new and exciting running projects.”
