Although Nickademus Hollon may appear inexperienced and young at first glance. The 23 year old San Diegan is far from it. He ran his first hundred at age 17, followed by becoming the youngest in history to complete the Badwater Ultramarathon at age 19. Since then he's began a journey to find the world's most difficult races and complete them. That's lead him to the finish line of the Spartan Death Race, The Arrowhead 135, The Furnace Creek 508 and many more. This year alone he won and became the 13th official finisher of the infamous Barkley Marathons. Last month he was the first North American to break top ten at Tor Des Geants (a 205 mile race with 80,000ft of gain). He is no stranger to sleep deprivation or 72+hrs of pointless suffering. And his focus is now turning towards both the Nicaragua Survival Run and 100k, will they be the toughest yet?
