One could argue that March 16, 2019 marked the beginning of the next generation of mountain runners. Trail and ultrarunning champion Anna Frost delivered baby girl Skylar Journee Braselton in New Zealand on March 16. Frost’s partner Ron Braselton, or “Braz” from Durango, CO wrote on his Instagram, “she’s perfect!”
Frost, or “Frosty” from Dunedin, NZ, is known for winning and setting course records for some of the world’s toughest trail and mountain races. She’s a three-time Hardrock 100 finisher, winning the race twice, and currently holds the second-fastest female time. In 2015, she was the first woman alongside Missy Gosney to complete Nolan’s 14 (14 14,000 foot peaks in Colorado’s Sawatch Mountain Range spanning 100 miles.)
Next up, Frost’s mountain running pals and professional mountain runners Emelie Forsberg and Kilian Jornet are about to welcome the birth of their baby mountaineer.
