Kaylo Littlejohn is a Columbia graduate and getting his phD at UC Berkley in electrical engineering and computer science. He’s also one of the youngest finishers of the Moab 240 (21 yrs) and Bigfoot 200 (22 yrs). Kaylo overcame a lot to be where he is today from an abusive home environment to being in special education because he was misunderstood. We talk about his ultrarunning experiences and motivation, racism growing up and what it’s like to be a black man in a sport that is predominantly white.
