Jenny Quilty is an ultra-trail runner living in British Columbia. She is both a community leader and competitive trail racer. Jenny is recognized for her overall win and women's course record at the Squamish 50/50 in 2019. Jenny is a race director for Fraser Valley Trail Races and co-owns a coaching company, Pacific Pine Running Co. Alongside these positions she works full time as an Occupational therapist.


Running began as a more recreational pursuit through highschool and university. She completed many half marathons through her undergraduate degree and did 1 road marathon, before turning to the trails. Upon finishing school, she decided to embark on an Ultra trail marathon. After her first 50km she entered a 50miler and wanted to grow on distances and competitive racing from there.
For Jenny racing is about finding out what she is capable of, physically and mentally. She believes her greatest strength in the sport is her positive attitude and ability to remain focused when challenges arise.
