[Olympic Valley, Calif.] May 21, 2014 – Squaw Valley will host The North Face ultrarunner and Tahoe local, Rory Bosio, for an inspirational afternoon that includes a trail run and motivational lecture both led by the world-class athlete on Friday, June 6.
Bosio, who has competed in ultramarathons for the past four years, will lead participants of all ages on a trail run up Squaw Valley’s scenic Shirley Canyon. The trail run begins at The North Face store, located in The Village at Squaw Valley, at 3 p.m. Following the exhilarating trail run, Bosio will speak about her experiences as a competitor in ultramarathons and discuss what inspires her during a lecture in The Village Events Plaza at 6 p.m.
Both the trail run and lecture are free to the public and open to participants of all ages and ability levels. Trail running attire and proper footwear are recommended for the trail run. Warm clothing is recommended for the lecture, which will be outdoors.
Bosio is one of the most recognized distance runners in the world. She can run more than 100 miles in a single day, and says she finds her inspiration to run from the breathtaking Sierra Nevada mountains. In 2012, she was the 2nd place female finisher and 21st overall finisher in her age group for the Western States 100 mile race, which starts in Squaw Valley and finishes in Auburn, Calif. She also took the women’s title for the 2012 Mt. Mitchell Challenge which is a 40 mile race in Black Mountain, North Carolina.
