Ultramarathon standout, Krissy Moehl will be the featured speaker at this year’s RidgeWalk & Run Pre-Event Dinner on Saturday, October 14th at 6 pm at the Wellsville Country Club. Tickets are $20 and include a pasta bar dinner, cash bar, and a chance to meet this running legend.

An ultramarathon is a foot race of 26 miles or more. Krissy Moehl is recognized world-wide for her dedication to the sport. She has participated in over 100 ultramarathon races, with 55 female wins and two overall wins. She is a two-time champion of the Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc, a 103-mile mountain race through the Alps in France, Italy, and Switzerland. Ms. Moehl holds the fastest known times for the 93-mile Wonderland Trail around Mt. Rainier in Washington at 22 hours, 22 minutes, and the 165-mile Tahoe Rim Trail, loop around the Lake Tahoe Basin in the Sierra Nevada and Carson ranges of California and Nevada, for which she hold a women’s record of 47 hours, 29 minutes. She is the director of the Chuckanut 50K in her hometown of Bellingham, WA.  You could say she wrote the book on ultramarathons.  Krissy is the author of “Running Your First Ultra: Customizable Training Plans for the Your First 50K or 100 Mile Race” and she will sign copies at the dinner.

“We are very excited to have a runner of Krissy’s caliber here in Wellsville,” said Rich Shear, founder of the RidgeWalk & Run. “She is a true running legend and will be an inspiration to runners, walkers, and hikers alike”
