Chris Auld – Speedland Athlete
Running has been an integral part of my life from a young age. Being born and raised in Eugene, OR, I was immersed in the best running that Track Town had to offer. The love for running that had developed led me to compete at Seattle University, focusing on middle distances. After completing school, I sought a new challenge, and the trails provided that for me. I fell in love with the endless miles the Issaquah Alps east of Seattle provided. I jumped into my first 50k on a whim, and the rest is history.
I’ve completed numerous ultramarathons, journeyed to gorgeous places, and met the most amazing people. Running is the one constant in my life, through all the ups and downs. It has given so much to me. Now my purpose is to show others how much running can give to them.
