Back From The Edge: Diane Van Deren’s Spirited Life and Adventures

Ultrarunner Diane Van Deren spent ten years racked by epilepsy, but radical brain surgery gifted her with a seizure-free life and a super-human endurance that has driven her to win grueling events like the 2009 Yukon Arctic Ultra, a 430 mile foot race across a frozen wilderness. In 2010 she turned to mountaineering and climbed South America’s tallest peak, Aconcagua. On this expedition, researchers at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester wired her up and monitored her movements to see what sets her apart form other athletes. Medical science is intrigued by Diane Van Deren: a survivor, a peak performer, and a wife and mother of three. Her inspirational story will captivate you and motivate you to strive for your personal best.

VIP reception will benefit Wild Trails. Many thanks to our sponsor, Rock/Creek!
