Jacky Hunt-Broersma is the epitome of “Run Without Rules.”
The cancer survivor and mother is one of the most accomplished amputee ultramarathoners
around, trailblazing firsts for all female and amputee runners.
After losing her leg to cancer, Jacky’s running journey began. From there, she has found her stride in the 50-mile race length. Her running career is crowned with accomplishments like breaking World Records, being named WRAL Athlete of the Year, and being named Strong Fitness Magazine’s Woman to Watch in 2021. She is also the first amputee runner to take on the TransRockies Mountain Stage trail race and the The Naturalist 25k trail race.
