Ryan Steiner


Ryan Steiner is an autistic runner and advocate. He is passionate about running and making sure that the sport is accessible to everyone. One way that he does this is by pushing his daughter in a running wheelchair he calls the chariot. Seventeen years ago, he weighed over 750 pounds and was told he wouldn’t be capable of maintaining meaningful connections with other humans. Back then, he ran slower than some people walk—although you wouldn’t know this today if you saw him run by you out on the trails. One of Ryan’s favorite quotes is “true change happens at the edge of your comfort zone.”
