This month, we bring our newest coach, Eric Senseman, into our Sundog Running family. Join us in giving him a hearty welcome!


Eric runs far to explore what’s possible and in pursuit of the good life. Since 2011, he’s finished more than 25 ultramarathons, winning eight of them. He made his first U.S. national team in 2016 and represented the United States that year at the International Association of Ultrarunners (IAU) 50k World Championships in Doha, Qatar. Aside from his mustache, Eric is perhaps best known for his win at the 2017 JFK 50 Mile and his Golden Ticket run at the 2018 Lake Sonoma 50, which landed him at the start line of the 2018 Western States 100. He lives in Flagstaff, Arizona and trains with a group called the Coconino Cowboys. His current sponsors include rabbit, HOKA ONE ONE, Compressport, GU Energy Labs and Nathan Sports.

Outside of running and coaching, Eric works for the world’s best all-natural, anti-chafe salve company, Squirrel’s Nut Butter.
