HOME BASE: Athens, VT
Hi! I’m Josh Ferenc, but everyone calls me Ferenc (unless I’m in trouble with my mother!). I am an absolute wild competitor hailing from the great state of Vermont! I love putting everything I have out there and leaving every fiber of my existence on the trails and in the mountains. I always want to look in the mirror and be satisfied with my efforts.
The hardest thing about running is staying sharp physically and mentally at all times. Staying motivated is easy, but staying sharp is tough. I love the trails and mountains because it challenges every element of my being. That is why it is so important to have gear that is as tough as me: Darn Tough Socks, with the lifetime guarantee, are the most essential gear for a runner!
My proudest moments could easily be: having represented Team USA and the USA Long Distance Mountain Team in Switzerland and Poland; The USA 50k World Championships in The Netherlands; and traveling to Canada and Colombia for epic ultra-Sky Running events have been amazing. Traveling has led to some of the best athletic and life experiences of my life. The feeling of pride comes with epic hard work and accomplishment. I am very fortunate and grateful for all that has happened and I’m incredibly fortunate for this opportunity to be a representative for Darn Tough.
