Allison Pattillo

Allison grew up playing field hockey, but secretly lived for the annual Presidential Physical Fitness Test mile run. She started running in college and switched mostly to trails after moving to Colorado. So far she’s raced trail 5Ks to 55Ks, with some multi-day stage races and a Boston Qualifier mixed in for fun. She is two decades into her quest to find the perfect running dog and will gladly let the right one chew her shoes.
