Thank you for visiting Llamarunner.com! I am Llamarunner, Jon Frederick is my real name, and I’m addicted to endurance sports. Or maybe I’m just addicted to having a darn good time! I hope to provide you with a experience that will make you want to travel, sign up for races, and test yourself to be the best athlete that you can be. Surrounding yourself with a group of people that inspires and provides a sense of family is what really makes a athlete strive! I look forward to getting to know all of you, and hope to see you out on the trails!
I’m a Athlete and Professional Photographer living in the Boston MA area. Ultra trail running, cross country skiing (nordic), cycling, and mountain biking are a few of my favorite sports! Over the years I’ve tested myself in many races and events but the Leadville 100 run is the one that is near and dear to my heart. It’s the one that makes me feel alive.
