Born in the high-altitude mountains of Bogota, Colombia, Jennifer knew from an early age that the mountains were home. She discovered her love of running when she tried out cross country in the seventh grade, this was only the beginning. Her passion for the sport itself grew as she ran competitively through high school and college. After brief hiatus from training, Jenn stumbled into mountain trail running while working as a hiking guide in Glacier National Park. She found herself driven to adventure deeper and longer into remote areas of the Northern Rocky Mountains. In the Fall of 2021, she lined up for her first ultra at The Rut 50km and smiled her way to an historically fast time. In the time since she has nurtured a budding trail running career with the help of The North Face. Jennifer currently resides in Missoula, MT where she spends her days adventuring in the mountains surrounding. Besides her rigorous training schedule, she enjoys spending time with her beloved dog, Uno, coaching fellow runners, and cooking delicious meals to fuel her life.
Jenn joined the Spring Team in 2023. You can follow all of her adventures on Instagram @jenniferlichter
