Stephanie has competed in many RacingThePlanet 250 kilometer self-supported races. She came in 1st in the race in Vietnam, 1st in the Nepal 250K and 2nd in the Australian 250. She also won Vermont’s 100 mile endurance race in 2009. This all started in her last year of law school when she decided to go climb Mt. Kilimanjaro. For Stephanie it was a life-changing experience and she was hooked on this kind of adventure. Out one night with friends talking and drinking wine, a race series Stephanie had found while browsing the internet called RacingThePlanet came up. This race series consisted of 250 kilometer races over 6 stages in 7 days. Called self-supported because the competitors must carry all of their own food and gear on their backs. Whoa. So wine + mastercard + late night internet browsing = an impetuous decision. She woke up the next morning and realized that she had paid her deposit for the next RacingThePlanet 250 kilometer race in Northern Vietnam. Stephanie Case ended up winning her first ever ultra race in Vietnam and many others since, including the Nepal 250 in November of 2011. You can follow Stephanie on her blog at where you'll find she has a great sense of humour interwoven in writing that is interesting, engaging and entertaining.
