Amelia Boone 2015 Spartan World Championship 2

Amelia Boone, the 2013 Spartan Race World Champion, was one of the first real breakout stars of the obstacle racing phenomenon. She registered for her first race in 2011 with a group of colleagues and not only instantly fell in love with the sport, but had a natural ability to dominate it. The Portland, Ore. native was featured on the cover of the September 2015 issue of Runner's World magazine and was ranked as one of the Top 50 people in the running industry by the same publication.
