Alicia Weber’s World Championship Win and Interview
Alicia Weber was a 10, 000 meter track runner who was an All American, while still in high school. She was 3rd in the nation, while in high school and was hoping to go to the World Championships in the 10k, but that was not an event offered for juniors (runners under age 20) in the world championships with USA Track and Field. Thirteen years later, Alicia’s dream to become the 10K World Champion has come true! Alicia was a track and field runner for 12 years and then turned to other types of challenging running events. Alicia now prefers off terrain to any other type of running. Alicia loves the challenge and toughness with running on the beach and is thrilled to be the 10k World Champion in this inaugural world championship event!
