Leah Yingling has been tearing up trail races in the Wasatch for a few years. From podiums at The Grand Traverse, North Face, Bear, Squaw Peak, and Telluride Mountain Run, she’s also reached out to put on a popular fatass that traverses 40 miles across some incredible terrain.

Leah grew up in Pennsylvania, one of four girls in a very competitive family that saw all siblings on the same high school cross country team at the same time.
From there, you’ll have to hear her story about college, trauma, training, diet, and her love for the trail community in the Wasatch Range.
Pretty much the coolest race shirt ever. Pic courtesy Leah Lingying.
