Mel Briggs


Mel is a professional runner with her expertise being on the track in the 3k steeplechase, and was ranked top 20 in the world for 4 years in a row. Shifting away from “just the track,” she’s embracing the multi sport life and freedom off the 400m oval.

Born and raised in the high desert, and currently living in Bend, OR, Mel has seen the effects if climate change her entire life. From wildfires being a rare occurrence to now being a normal 5th season. Her love of animals and joy of being outside led her into her passion for the environment and the climate.
