Big Bear Trivia Scavenger Hunt Question #15

This is the final question for the Big Bear Trivia Scavenger Hunt! You have until the end of the day on Sunday, September 6th to have all of your answers submitted. We will draw the winner on Tuesday, September 8th. Good luck and thanks for playing!

Research indicates that the best altitude for training is between 7,000 to 8,000 feet. When you train at high altitudes, high-quality training becomes more difficult to achieve. Easy and long runs are doable at altitudes between 7,000 and 8000 feet, but the thinner air makes it difficult to do intense speed work.

Question: This American half-marathon record holder and Olympian is Big Bear's favorite home grown athlete?

Email your answer to and you could win a FREE SKI WEEKEND!!!
