You probably already came across this short, split-short wearing European guy on local trails. This guy's name is Adrien Prigent, one of our new RunUphill athletes. After spending a few years trail running and ultra-running on the other side of the Atlantic, Adrien made the move to the Rockies to get a taste of the North American trail running culture. He quickly became well known in the Bow Valley as "the guy who runs all the time" and we are happy to welcome Adrien to the RunUphill family!
A few of his results include:
- Terawera 100 Winner, New Zealand
- South Downs Way 100 Winner, United Kingdom
Name: Adrien Prigent (aka Chamois)
Professional occupation: Production manager at Rocky Mountain Soap Company
How did you start trail running? What was your first race? I used to be a road runner but one day my former manager came into work saying he had signed for a 100k Race. I was like sounds cool I’m gonna do it with you! So the Race to the Stones 100k Race was my first trail race and my first Ultra.
What are your goals this year? I have few races planned this year and I’d like to do really well in all of them...
- Sinister 7 (Canada)
- The Death Race (Canada)
- Ultra Trail Harricana (Canada)
- Golden Ultra (Canada)
- The North Face Endurance Challenge California (USA)
