By almost anyone's definition, Julie Moulton is crazy.
The Brainerd High School graduate has taken her passion for ultra-trail running to the ultimate level. From Oct. 12-16, she completed the Moab 240 Endurance Run, a 238.3-mile, five-day foot race through some of Utah's most beautiful and challenging terrain....


The race course is a massive loop that begins and ends in Moab, Utah. It follows the Colorado River through Canyonlands National Park and makes its way across the Abajo and the La Sal mountains back to Moab.
It was Moulton's first 200-mile race. She completed the grueling course in 103 hours, 7 minutes, 35 seconds, placing 17th in the women's division, 69th overall. Of the 153 runners registered, only 111 (84 men, 27 women) finished the 238.3 miles in the allotted 112 hours.
Runners from all over the world participated, but Moulton was the only racer from Minnesota. At 29, the Pillager resident was also one of the youngest. Only seven finishers were under age 30. READ MORE
