Rebecca Joyner, Brand Buddy

Rebecca Joyner

Guinness World Record holder for the fastest marathon ran as a skeleton! (Yup, that’s a thing)

​She signs up for races that sound like your running far but really are “power hiking”, like the Vol State 500k across Tennessee.

She has 3 young boys and has led a Cub Scout pack for 6 years to grow the next generation of hikers, leaders and conservationists.

​Her goal in the next few years is to run the Arrowhead 135, the “coldest race in America.” It’s a self supported 135 mile race in WI in February, that would give her the hottest (Vol State) and the coldest races in the North America.
