Western States 2015: Jason Green Interview

Meet Jason Green. Jason’s an Atlanta native who runs the Yeti Trail Running Group and will be making his way to Squaw Valley to run his first Western States. This, after four unsuccessful years of lotteries. Let’s find out how he’s preparing and what he’s expecting to go down in the Sierras!

Jason builds trails in his backyard, offers free entries to anyone with a Yeti tattoo, gives away the coolest awards at his races (custom skate decks!), is a legitimate beer expert, and has truly found his calling in the MUT scene.  Hear about his trailside Karl Meltzer introduction, the time when he built a race in Tyler Perry’s backyard, and how skateboarding and ultra trail running are so darn similar.
