Aaron Barber

Ultrarunner

I grew up running, but during my 20s I stepped away from the sport and focused on triathlon and road cycling. My wife and I moved from Michigan to Arizona in 2017, and since then I’ve been addicted to trail & ultra running. I spend my free time running, hiking, and exploring various peaks and canyons around Arizona. I love challenging, “slow” courses, and testing my limits by constantly upping the distance. 

2023 Goals: This year I’ll be focused on finishing Cocodona 250, running Rim to Rim to Rim at the Grand Canyon, and taking a podium spot at Mogollon Monster 100. I’ll also do a few shorter races and spend the summer training in Northern Arizona and Colorado.
