TORRANCE, Calif., Nov. 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Herbalife, a premier health and wellness company, congratulates its sponsored athlete, Heather Jackson, on her first-place win in the women’s division at the Javelina Jundred.
The Javelina Jundred race was held on a 100-mile trail course comprised mostly of the Pemberton Trail in McDowell Mountain Regional Park near Fountain Hills, Arizona. This is Jackson’s 6th win of the season since moving from triathlon to gravel cycling and ultra trail running in 2022.
“It’s incredibly rewarding to see how far I’ve come since I embarked on this new journey in ultra trail running just one year ago. I hope to continue inspiring people to challenge themselves to get outside their normal orbits and try something different and new,” said Heather Jackson. “Through a daily commitment to training and proper nutrition from my sponsor, Herbalife, I know I have the stamina to continue being a top competitor in endurance racing.”
Jackson debuted at the Javelina Jundred last year with a fifth-place run of 15:42, which remains the tenth-fastest ever. This year, Jackson ran strong for the entirety of the race and finished in 14:24, the second-fastest time in the history of the event.
“We support Heather Jackson as she continues to make a mark on the world of ultra trail running through hard work and commitment,” said Jennifer Guran, director of Sports Marketing and Alliances for Herbalife, North America. “Heather has the incredible dedication and stamina it takes to compete in these events, and it’s inspiring to see her succeed as she continues on this fulfilling new path.”
