  • Meet our Athletes: Adrien Prigent

    Meet our Athletes: Adrien Prigent

    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

If you have a gear question he is your guy and he is generous in sharing that knowledge with our team at SkiUphill. He occasionally wears spandex for Skimo races but his real thing is ‘’checking out’’ big and steep lines in the Rockies. Meet Joel...
