Dean Karnazes Wins ESPY Award for Best Outdoor Athlete

The polls are in, and Dean Karnazes won the ESPY Award for Best Outdoor Athlete by a large margin. A great day for Dean, I'm sure, and certainly a good day for ultrarunning. Congrats, Dean! You can check out the ceremony on ESPN this Sunday, July 15th, @ 9pm PST.


Dean passed on the following:
"Much thanks to the many of you who took the time and energy to vote and pass along the word to others. It was a tremendous evening at the ESPY awards ceremony in LA last night, and I got to rub shoulders with some of the great names in sports today (actually, my shoulder rubbed somewhere near their midsection, those basketball players are huge).

I was fortunate to be an ESPY winner in the category of Best Outdoor Athlete, and I really appreciate your support. It is a great honor to have won this award, and I thank you many times over.

Best always,

Dean Karnazes"

  1. Ah man! Way to ruin the surprise for me! ;) It's great to see that Dean won the ESPY, it can only be a good thing for the running community.

  3. Thanks for the fast update! It's nice to see him get this, though I imagine the Ultra community will have mixed reviews. Good for those folks that want to see ultrarunning get more exposure, bad for those that want to keep lottery races at a minimun. I'm sure the complaint will be that there are better runners out there, but ESPY's don't go to someone that the general public has not heard of. Reguardless, he's pushing limits and bringing exposure and money to great causes That should not be overlooked, no matter what someone's opinion of him is.

  4. Does Dean own any shirts?

  5. I think Dean and Matthew McConaughay share one shirt...so one week one gets, the next week the next...so mostly it's shirtless weeks for both:-)

  6. Hey, if I looked like Dean or Matthew McConaughay I wouldn't EVER wear a shirt.
