I have been racing at VLK in Charlotte, NC for over 10 years. I compete in endurance races from 2 to 12 to 24 hrs across the US, indoor and outdoor, and have won many. I have finished 7th in the USIKC. I now work at VLK as the General Manager and race in our league on a regular basis. I am excited to compete on a world stage and to bring this event to our facility next year. #VLK2019KWC
