Let me tell you a story about the picture above, taken right after leaving the mile 8 aid station at the Black Canyon 100K. What
Katie Webb lives in Santa Cruz, CA where she works in public safety and moonlights as an ultrarunner. She grew up on a ranch and spent her childhood running wild in the mountains with her brother, cousins, a pack of family dogs, and the ranch horses. She spent family vacations camping and backpacking throughout California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Colorado, and Oregon. After spending two decades as an endurance rider, she decided she wanted to become an ultrarunner and ran her first 50K in 2017. She co-leads the Santa Cruz, CA chapter of Trail Sisters and enjoys the opportunity to get other women out exploring the beautiful trail network the area has to offer. Her pack includes her dog Cooper, and her boyfriend/training partner/pacer/crew-chief Walker.
