I’m Shalini Bhajjan and I currently call St. Louis, Mo home. I’ve been an endurance athlete since 2014 with my primary sport being trail ultras but I will trade my trail running shoes for a gravel bike when the opportunity presents itself and I’m not in the thick of training for a 100Mi race.
I own a local trail/ultra-running group in St. Louis, Mo, Terrain Trail Runners that came to life right around 2014 when I was breaking into trail ultras. I’m an endurance coach and race direct nine trail races varying in distance from half marathon to 100 miles.
I am passionate about the community of trail/ultra-runners I’ve built in St. Louis, Mo as well being a small thread in the fabric of the trail and ultra-running at large. As a female race director my hope is that we can level the playing field when it comes to trail ultras by engaging more female athletes in our sport and bringing together a strong group of female co-race directors to my events.
Just lace up and go for a run, you won’t regret it!
