Wes Plate, Everett, WA - PATH projects KREW

I grew up in the PNW and started running in 2012. I ran my first half marathon in 2014 and started running ultras in 2015. I love sharing my adventures through my YouTube channel, I’m grateful I can help inspire others.

Running accomplishment(s) you are proud of

In 2019 I completed the Moab 240 endurance run. Moving for four days with little sleep taught me that we’re capable of so much.

Any races or adventures on your horizon and / or bucket list?

In 2021 I plan to run Cocodona 250 and California Untamed 330.

Your favorite PATH projects gear?

I love the Sykes shorts, the fabric is comfortable and doesn’t get soaked with sweat.

What do you enjoy about running? 

I love seeing new places and moving through them under my own power. Whether I’m exploring nee neighborhoods while running every street in my town, linking miles of logging roads, or traversing mountain trails, I get a view of my world that most people don’t experience.
