Emilie Mann will be traveling to Innsbruck-Stubai, Austria, for the second World Mountain & Trail Running Championships from June 6 through 10. Emilie was raised in Fernie and now resides in Kelowna. As a Merrell athlete will be representing Canada on the trail team for the Short Course Trail Worlds portion of the event.
Emilie has always enjoyed running, even as a kid growing up in our small mountain town – she feels at home on the trails. She has run competitively with road marathons, track, and cross country running, but always finds herself drawn back to long liberating runs in the mountains.
Emilie became more invested in training while studying Respiratory Therapy in Calgary AB. When she is not exercising her legs and lungs, she is treating her patient’s lungs at Kelowna General Hospital as a Respiratory Therapist or guiding her students through yoga classes at the studio.
Qualifying for World Mountain Running Championships in 2019 and racing in Argentina fueled the fire to see where she could take her running career.
