Lieutenant Colonel (Retired) Joshua Stevens is a professional Mountain, Ultra and Trail (MUT) runner based in Estes Park, Colorado. He is the 2019 Badwater Ultra Cup Champion and successfully completed the Badwater 135 and the Leadville 100 Trail Run double within 30-days. Following the second of two cervical spinal surgeries in 2011 resulting from direct exposure to Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) / road side bombs in Iraq he was informed that he would not run again. Three years later he ran his first 50k distance on his 44th Birthday. In the ensuing years he has become a competitive professional trail runner racing in some of the most prestigious ultra marathons in North America. In December 2017 Joshua ran 121.3 miles on a treadmill in Boulder, Colorado to raise money for a Non Profit.
