Name: Forrest Boughner

Age: 28

Hometown: Flagstaff, AZ

Currently Living: Yes

Miles Run Per Week: 70

Currently Training For: US Sky Running Championships and the US Snowshoe Championships

Favorite Race or Run: I love “running” ridgelines. It’s technically engaging and anytime I need a break there are plenty of great views.

Favorite Activity Outside of Running: Reading (closet nerd)

Do You Prefer Running on Roads or Trails? Trails! (and beyond)

Run Solo or With A Group? One or two good friends.

Words of Wisdom: Keep it fun. It’s too easy to take running beyond the point of joy. If you’re not going to enjoy running then why live in Montana?

Anything Else You’d Like to Add: I hiked 3100 miles of the Continental Divide Trail with my wife. Nothing says blisters like southern New Mexico.
