Team TROT Ambassador Victor Valenzuela


This week’s ambassador needs no introduction!  Known simply as “Vic200,” Victor Valenzuela established himself as a true endurance runner and all around trail-connoisseur in 2017 with his 100 mile finishes at BB100, Dinosaur Valley Endurance Run, Orion 100, Blazing 7s 100, Jackalope Jam, and Rocky Raccoon 100. Victor completed the Texas Independence Relay as a solo runner, and he managed to eat at every Whataburger along the route from Gonzalez to the San Jacinto Monument!
