 Injinji athletes Andrew Miller and Amy Sproston had an impressive showing at the legendary Western States 100 (WS100) race this past weekend with Miller, winning the overall race with a time of 15:39:36, and becoming the youngest winner in the history of WS100, while Sproston nailed down second place in the women’s division with a time of 18:54:44.

A native of Corvallis, Oregon, Miller is only 20 years of age and is currently attending Northern Arizona University where he’s studying exercise science. Miller who grew up trail running with his mother, started running ultras at age 14 and has since gone on to win nine ultra marathons, including the Georgia Death Race back in March of 2015 which was the race that secured his bid into this year’s WS100.

“We are so proud of the impressive performance from both Andrew and Amy at Western States this past weekend,” said Jason Battenfield, Injinji Chief Executive Officer, “This is one of the most prestigious races in the country and to have these incredible athletes wearing and representing Injinji out on the course is a tremendous nod to our product and brand.”

Amy Spronston, is a Bend, Oregon native and no stranger to the WS100 course, having previously run it three times between 2011-2013.
