Personal biography, taken from his personal page on 7summits.com (http://7summits.com/info/stats2/index2.php?_=d&familyname=Ulrich):
Marshall Ulrich, 53, is a veteran of over 110 ultra marathons averaging over 100 miles each. He is the only person in the world to complete the Triple Crown of Extreme Sports: world class ultra runner, record setting adventure racer, and Seven Summits mountaineer. His specialty is competing in extreme conditions including desert and adventure racing, as well as mountaineering.

He was named in the top 10 “2004 Outdoor Person of the Year Awards” by Hooked on the Outdoors magazine in February 2005, not only for his athletic accomplishments but for “giving back” – including raising over $220,000 for charity, including the Religious Teachers Filippini.

Having climbed with Marsh and his lovely wife Heather in Elbrus last year I can testify that he is one hell of a guy and totally genuine. I'm proud to know him and look forward to climbing with him in the future.
