Elite Athlete, Doug Kurtis

Meet Doug Kurtis. At 60 years old, he can still finish a marathon in under 3 hours: a feat he has accomplished some 200 times in his life! Doug has completed 76 of those marathons in under 2 hours and 20 minutes, a world record. Doug is the race director of the annual Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot in Detroit, which attracts an astonishing 20,000 runners and a relatively new event, the St Patrick’s Day run which has over 8,000 participants.

For the past several years Doug has been racing in traning in Spira®. “I can run in any brand of shoe. I chose to run Spira because the shoes work for me better than any other brand. The WaveSpring® is a significant advancement in shoe technology. It reduces stress and fatigue and helps me to stay injury free. I am proud to be a Spira ambassador,” said Kurtis.
