Manuela Vilaseca is one of the most accomplished trail and ultra runners in the world.  With two top-ten finishes at the Super Bowl of ultrarunning, Ultra Trail Mont Blanc, a top-ten Ultra Trail World Tour ranking, multiple wins, course records, and podium finishes, it is hard to find a more versatile athlete in the sport.

One thing that distinguishes Manu from others at the front of the pack is her ability to compete over a variety of surfaces and distances without training at altitude. Manu was born and raised at sea level (in Brazil) and yet even when racing at UTMB or on Mt. Everest, she competes with the locals. She attributes this ability to her multi-disciplinary training which includes trail running, cycling, and yoga. 

Manu's lifetime of experience has helped her become fluent in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and Catalan. Her language skills make her an invaluable member of the Peak Run Performance coaching team as she is able to work with athletes from all over the world in multiple languages.
