Katie Spotz preparing for next endurance challenge

Katie Spotz, clean water activist and adventurer, will embark on her latest ultra-endurance challenge and fundraising initiative Run4Water, on June 21 in her home state of Ohio.

The Mentor native's goal is to break the female world record for the most ultra-marathons run in a row with 11 consecutive ultra-marathons (31-mile runs) and fund 11 clean water projects in Uganda, raising $34,100 for H2O for Life, according to a news release.

Spotz will run across the entire state of Ohio, along the Ohio to Erie Trail from Cincinnati to Cleveland completing the 341-mile journey.

In 2020, Spotz became the first woman to run 62-miles nonstop across New Hampshire in 11 hours. Later that year, she became the first woman to run 74-miles nonstop across Vermont in 13 hours in preparation for the run across Maine.
