Jacky Hunt-Broersma (born August 14, 1975 is an amputee ultramarathon runner who is a world record holder and one of very few female amputee ultrarunners in the world.
She was the first amputee to run a 100-miles on a treadmill and ran it under 24 hours. Finishing it in 23hr38 and setting a new world record. Hunt-Broersma set the record with her performance in Cary, North Carolina on April 2020. Hunt-Broersma was also the first amputee to take on the brutal TransRockies Mountain Stage Race in Colorado.
