Houston’s Drew Adams was one of just 13 endurance runners to complete the grueling Grand Slam of Ultrarunning Series.

In order to be eligible for the award, participants must officially complete three of the four first Grand Slam Series races and then complete the Wasatch Front 100 Mile Endurance Run all in the same summer.

Adams did it in 10 weeks.

The series consists of the Old Dominion 100 Mile Endurance Run, Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run, Vermont 100 Endurance Race and Leadville Trail 100 Run before wrapping up with the Wasatch Front 100 Miler.

Adams, of Houston High fame, was one of the fastest runners among the grand slammers.

He was second at Western States (21:30:28) and Vermont Trail (21:26:09), third in the Leadville Trail (24:15:39) and tied for fourth at the Wasatch Front (29:07:40).

Grand slammers were presented with the Grand Slam of Ultrarunning Series Award at the conclusion of the Wasatch Front.

The award is a beautifully sculpted eagle with engravings signifying the runner’s name and awesome accomplishment.
