Rob Krar and Depression: ‘The Most Powerful Force in My Life’

Ultrarunning phenom Rob Krar speaks openly and frankly about his struggle with depression in the short film from the Movember Foundation.

Rob Krar is a star in the ultrarunning world. This year, after a nearly career-ending injury, he won the Leadville 100, narrowly missing the course record. And he did it just a week after riding the Leadville 100 MTB race!

But for Krar, his biggest struggle isn’t running 100 miles. The short film by the Movember Foundation offers a glimpse into how long-distance running and talking about his mental health has helped him deal with the pain of his chronic depression. As he puts it on social media, depression is “the most powerful force in my life.”
