Athletes to watch: Addie Bracy

The 2017 GoPro Mountain Games are proud to say that the men’s and women’s U.S. Mountain Running Champions will both be on hand to compete for the $5,500 prize purse in the Superfeet 10K Spring Runoff, which will take place on the original Vail Mountain course once used for the U.S. Trail Running championships.

On the women’s side, favorite Addie Bracy came out of nowhere to take the U.S. Mountain Running Championships gold in 2017. Well, not nowhere exactly, but out of Boulder via North Carolina. This Tar Heel heel traded in track spikes for trail shoes in April of 2016, and since then has been taking the trail-running world by storm. Like many trail runners, she was burnt out with mile after mile of road racing – but was reborn upon the trails of the Rocky Mountains, and may reach an all-new plane in mountain running as she tackles the steep GoPro Mountain Games course.
