Sabrina Stanley dominates in the most grueling of mountain ultra marathons, where her determination, dedicated training, and competitive spirit pay off. At just 31, Sabrina’s already earned her place on the podium at many high profile, notoriously brutal ultra marathons, and she’s just getting started.
Sabrina lives and trains in Silverton, Colorado with her partner Avery Collins, who is also an accomplished ultra runner as well. They both use real food to power their runs, and spend long days in the San Juan Mountains.
She’s set to race the Hardrock 100 Mile Run as the defending champion, where she’ll face steep competition from Courtney Dauwalter – a legend in the making –and Darcy Piceu, the Queen of Hardrock.
