“Maine is the ultimate multi-sport destination. It’s rare to find a world class kayak and hiking destination with such significant history and cultural heritage. Pro skier and adventurer, Kalen Thorien, and ultra-runner, Alex Borsuk, set out to explore the rugged terrain of Maine’s eastern shoreline. The duo sea kayaked and adventure camped on their way to Isle au Haut, where they circumnavigated the island in their own fashions. Kalen went by sea, paddling 15 miles, and Alex by foot, running 30 technical trail miles.”

But she’s truly passionate about running her own self-supported routes that take her 30 or 40 miles into the mountains.
