Hi! My name is Cyndi, I live in Southern California and mountain running, trekking, and backpacking are my top outdoor activities. There are three 10k+ peaks within 2 hrs. and the Eastern Sierras are a 4-hour drive, so I have plenty of trails to explore. I love technical, high altitude trails, and thrive when I’m uncomfortable in the outdoors. I enjoy introducing new outdoor enthusiasts to distances, summits and experiences. Seeing their faces, accomplishing something they thought was impossible or crazy, completes me.

Completing 42+ Ultra Marathon distance races. (7) 100-mile mountain races, top 10 women in five of the 100s. For six years in a row, 1st place female, 8000 Meter Challenge (Summitting three 10k foot peaks in 20 hrs), and being the first woman to be awarded the Mark Fulton Award. I have created running programs for REI and Outessa, Run Clubs, and create events to challenge without the competition.

What’s next?
I started the year with organizing Mt Wilson “Make it a Double” event. I’ll compete in Mt Mitchell Challenge, Trail run the Backbone Trail with friends (69 mile), compete in The Canyons Ultra UTMB, cross Grand Canyon; back-to-back rim to rim, backpack in the Sierras, and while visiting Germany this summer, will veer off for some trail exploration.

My favorite LOWAs:
My favorite trail running shoe is the Maddox. It has durability for jagged rocks, stability, and comfort that’s perfect when you want to go fast and light. I must mention my Ferrox Pro Mid GTX - this is my favorite pick for fast, high altitude mountain adventures. It protects ankles, is flexible enough for running, and helps prevent rocks from entering shoes. Thank you LOWA!
