WSER: Meet the Julbo Athletes

The Western States Endurance Run is one of the most prestigious endurance running events in the United States, and is heavily attended by Julbo sponsored athletes. Here are a few teammates from Julbo that ran to perfection at the event in Squaw Valley this past month.

Ian Sharman
Sharman is a first-class running coach and race director (for the Julbo sponsored Skyrunner series) and always poses a threat in any race he competes in. “Fitness is 50% of the battle on race day,” Sharman wrote prior to WSER, talking about how experience is the secret behind the mental game of running.

Dylan Bowman

If you follow Bowman on Strava you will see that he has posted over 316,000 feet of climbing and over 1800 miles in total running this year. He is light on his feet and is based in Aspen, which gave him an advantage in the high altitude.

Denise Bourassa

Denise is taking on WSER as a part of the Ultra Grand Slam, and is not afraid of any challenges that may get in her way. I explore where only few can go, I follow my feet and open my mind to the beauty of running,” the Bend, Oregon runner describes as her motivation.
