Robin Oxnard Grossman calls the mountains of Southwest Virginia home where she lives with her husband and three kids and works full time with United Way of Southwest Virginia. After many years of observing ultras from the sidelines, she jumped into her first ultra at age 42 in 2016. Her favorite playtime activity is trail running and she’s curious to see where the trails take her socially, physically, mentally, and geographically in 2019 and beyond.
