The Tahoe 200 was the next 'BIG GOAL' run Phil Brown had in his sights before the March 1st 2017 tragedy that claimed his life. Phil was robbed of the opportunity to physically experience the 200-mile run around North America's largest alpine lake. However, the non-profit organization founded in Phil's memory, the PHEEL GOOD Foundation, works to help others enjoy events that Phil would have enjoyed participating in and supporting. PHEEL GOOD Foundation is excited to announce the non-profit's registration sponsorship of accomplished ultra runner and head running coach at Run Natural Coach, Dawn Lisenby. Dawn will be running the 2021 Tahoe 200 event that begins on September 10th in Homewood, California, and that concludes on September 14th.
Dawn is a Badwater 146-mile and a Big Blue 132-mile solo finisher. As a multiple certification-holding running coach, Dawn has countless running, coaching, and race directing accomplishments to her credit which span both miles and years of dedication. On September 10th, she is putting those experiences to a new challenge as she honors Phil's memory by tackling the Tahoe 200 Endurance Run.
"My desire to run the Tahoe 200 in Phil's memory comes from a similar place as my establishing the Jacks Trail Race for my bother. In order to continue the legacy of a really inspiring person gone from us too soon. It will be my great honor to tackle the challenge of what was one of Phil's dreams, to complete the Tahoe 200. By running in his memory, I will hope to, as he always did, inspire others to dream big, give back, and share the joy that is part and parcel of doing so. I am so grateful to the PHEEL GOOD Foundation for this incredible opportunity."
YOUR participation in the 'VIRTUAL 200 for Phil' will support Dawn's efforts and allow YOU the opportunity to achieve a very special 200-mile distance. While Dawn has a mere 4 days to complete the 200+ mile trek, the 'VIRTUAL 200 for Phil' allows you a MONTH to complete the 200 miles. Log your miles in a weekend, a week, 2 weeks, 3 weeks, or all four. The goal is 200 miles -- however you can get them. Let's rally behind Dawn and support her Tahoe 200 journey, and let's bond together and keep Phil's beautiful spirit alive as we 'Tahoe 200 for Phil'...virtually. *** Cool 200-mile shirt & medal will be mailed directly to you. Mailouts begin August 2nd.
