As part of the ambassadorship, Moehl will be testing new products and providing feedback to the product design team at Vasque as they develop the 2017 trail running collection. Recently Moehl ran in Vasque’s Pendulum on her trip to Chile, for the filming of Patagonia’s documentary, Mile for Mile, that highlights Conservacion Patagonica’s efforts to re-wild and protect Patagonia Park in Chile. In 2015, Moehl will finally live out her ultra-running dream of representing the USA at the IAU World Trail Championships for the 50-mile distance.
