Name: Megan Kimmel          

Age: 33

Hometown: Denver, CO 

Current residence: Silverton, CO

Sponsors: ASICS, Emich Volkswagon, Cafe Mobius

Personal Bests (or Worsts): Well plenty of worsts....but most proud of 2009 Pikes Peak Ascent Victory because its such a classic and it has been such a mind bending race ever since that year. 

Notable Achievements: 3 time USA Mountain Team Member, 5 time LaSportiva Mountain Cup Champion.

Goals for 2013/2014/beyond: Oh, lots of goals but it all comes down to goal #1 of having more time to train.

Favorite trails: The Colorado Trail off of Molas Pass, The Colorado Trail out of Durango. Both of these trails are very different than each other and totally beautiful. 

Favorite workout: Long adventure runs.

Favorite races: The Golden Leaf (Snowmass, CO).


Favorite beer: The one that is the coldest. 

Why Trail/Mountain/Ultra Running?: Well, to get out of the paved world of course. Nature provides so much beauty, adventure, peacefulness that it is easy to leave myself behind and just be free.
