Christopher Lassen

Born in Missouri, but a life long Ohio resident, Chris has been active in the outdoors his whole life. Camping, hiking, biking, snowboarding, rock climbing, and just about anything to get outside and keep him feeling younger then his soon to be 54. “I have been running ultras almost 10 years. 50 miles is my favorite distance, but I've also run a lot of 50k's and this year I'm running three 100's. He is a 27+ year full time firefighter, and has been involved in specialized training for the military for 10 years. Chris has also worked as a tech rep for Petzl. So what brought Chris here? “Well in 2015 I watched my daughter battle to overcome her heroin addiction. Her courage showed me a strength that touched my heart and soul. She has been clean and very active in the program for almost 1 year now. My relationship with Runwell is a way for me to reach out and help others fighting the same battle. I run with the strength of my daughter Marissa and our love is my endurance.”
