|2014 WESTERN STATES 100 CHAMPION, 2017 100K NATIONAL CHAMPION
Running has been a big part of Stephanie Howe’s life since college, where she raced cross-country and Nordic skiing and was a two-time All American. After college she fell in love with trail running and started to compete in longer races. Today, Stephanie calls Bend, Oregon home and she is one of America’s top professional ultra runners. She trains and races in the mountains year round and loves it. There, she is able to let go and just be present.
Professionally, Stephanie fulfilled her passion for endurance sports by studying Exercise Science. She received a Master's degree in Exercise Physiology from Montana State University and is currently a doctoral candidate in Nutrition & Exercise Physiology at Oregon State University. She also owns a coaching and sports nutrition business, Endurance By Stephanie, where she works with endurance athletes of all abilities.
Stephanie’s goal for the future is be one of the top ultra runners in the world. She wants to continue to race competitively in local, regional, and international races against the best competitors in the sport. She also wants to be present in her local community and inspire others to live healthy and fulfilled lifestyles. She is truly thankful for each and every day she is able to get out the door and run. It’s a lifestyle that gives her great satisfaction and makes her very happy. Judging by her recent race results, it's a lifestyle that suits her well!
