ABOUT US

Hillary is an endurance athlete specializing in ultra marathon distance trail running. She started running in 2011 and comes from a background of high level athletics, playing tennis in college. In 2012 she ran her first marathon at the CIM marathon (3:15) and, unsatisfied with her time, she decided to train more specifically for speed, then ran a self supported marathon of 2:51. After that, she switched exclusively to trail runner where she prefers steep and technical terrain earning her the nickname the "Hillygoat." Based in Colorado where she grew up, Hillary is also a author of Out and Back, a runner's story of survival against all odds. She's earned course records and wins all over the world racing 50km all the way up to 145km.
