Born and raised in Vancouver, BC, Jeff always enjoyed hiking and camping in the local mountains and trekking abroad. But it wasn’t until he began running at the age of 27, first dabbling in road marathons before finding trail running, that his passion for mountain adventure really developed.
As an ultra distance runner and member of the Salomon Flight Crew, he now competes in distances from 50 km to 100 miles. What he enjoys most is spending time training in the backcountry, while working through a growing list of adventure runs like the Grand Canyon double-crossing and the 93-mile Wonderland Trail around Mt. Rainier.
“I love getting up into the mountains in the winter, something that’s easy to do with the right equipment. But it wasn’t until I discovered Hillsound crampons that I was finally able to continue my training with confidence all year-round.” – Jeff Pelletier
