Icon. Legend. Coach.
Mark Covert was the first person to ever cross a finish line wearing Nike Waffles. He did this in the 1972 Olympic Trials Marathon. Mark finished the race in seventh with a time of 2 hours and 23 minutes.
They called him “Bushman”.
From 1968 to 2013 Mark ran an average of nine miles every single day and he never missed a day. During his 45 year streak, Mark ran more than 160,000.
Mark is now the Head Coach at Antelope Valley College, and is enshrined in 6 Hall of Fames.
