Sun Mountain 50 Miles – 9:24:44 (6th lady home!)


Heather “Anish” Anderson has been running ultras since 2009. Her first race was the Chuckanut 50k, which she is now co-RD of.  She has five 100 mile finishes (and counting!) including Cascade Crest, Plain, and Western States.  She has also thru-hiked the entire Appalachian, Pacific Crest and Continental Divide Scenic trails. She’s completed the Pacific Crest Trail twice; the second time she set the self-supported speed record (FKT, fastest known time) in 60 days 17 hourssmashing the previous record by 4 days.  She regularly speaks about her experiences on the PCT as well as her journey from overweight teenager to record setter.
