50 Miles in Marin: A Passion for Running and Nutrition

“My Passion for endurance sports plays a tremendous role in my success as an athlete, but also it raises the bar of excellence of what I do at work and the products that I dream about creating for athletes to allow them to reach their full potential.”

-Magda Boulet, Winner of 2014 The North Face 50 Mile Championship / VP of Innovation, Research & Development at GU


Don’t let her smile or easy going demeanor fool you.  When Magda Boulet hits the trails, she hits them hard.  If you’ve spent time running the trails in the Bay Area, there’s good chance you’ve run into her… but you probably weren’t able to keep up for very long.

On Saturday December 5th, Magda will toe the line to defend her title at the 2015 North Face 50 Mile Championships.  With a 5am start time, she’ll hopefully have her headlamp on tight when the starting gun fires.
