Ryan Montgomery is an openly queer ultrarunner and sat down to talk with Scotty about Pride Month and being a beacon for others as an athlete. Last year, he placed second at the Desert Solstice 24 hour and third in the 100-mile event. And while most of us were binge-watching Tiger King, Ryan set an unsupported FKT on the Wonderland Trail around Mt. Rainier. Ryan will be rocking the red, white and blue for Team USA at the 24 Hour World Championships in Romania this year, as well as  running  at UTMB.

In the spirit of Pride Month, we'd like to share a great organization dedicated to LGBTQ+ youth, Brave Trails. Brave Trails offers accredited summer camps, family camps, mentorship programs, meet-up groups and year-round leadership programing. The programs focus on helping LGBTQ+ youth find what they need most to thrive. Learn more at
