Ryan Montgomery is an openly queer ultrarunner and sat down to talk with Scotty about Pride Month and being a beacon for others. Last year he placed second at the Desert Solstice 24 hour and third in the 100-mile event. And while most of us were binge-watching Tiger King, Ryan sett an unsupported FKT on the Wonderland Trail around Mt. Rainier.
Ryan will be rocking the red, white and blue for Team USA l at the 24 Hour World Championships in Romania this year as well as running at UTMB.
In the spirit of Pride Month, we’d like to share a great organization dedicated to LGBTQ+ youth, Brave Trails. Brave Trails offers accredited summer camps, family camps, mentorship programs, meet-up groups and year-round leadership programing. The programs focus on helping LGBTQ+ youth find what they need most to thrive. Learn more at bravetrails.org.
