A Running Life: Ann Trason | Runner’s World
Ann Trason won the Western States Endurance Run women’s race 14 times, twice beating all of the men but one. During her career, which spanned from the late 1980s through 2004, she set world records for 50 miles, 100K, 12 hours, and 100 miles. Her course records still stand at prestigious ultras across the country, including the Leadville Trail 100 (18:06). Trason, however, doesn’t hold much regard for her accolades; at age 54, she’d rather discuss just about anything but the trail she blazed in the sport.
