People don’t call Hillary Allen the “Hillygoat” for nothing: She has quickly proven her ability as a fast runner in the mountains, especially when the trail turns towards the sky. Originally a tennis player, Allen didn’t take up distance running until grad school, when she needed an outlet to clear her mind while on her degree in neuroscience. She linked up with a few local runners and never looked back, quickly achieving podium results in long distance trail races. Since then, her running has taken her to races around the world, where she continues to rack up podium finishes and set course records, while maintaining a humble attitude and great sense of humor while doing it.
