About the Chief Zombies

Don and Gillian are ultrarunners and co-owners of ZombieRunner. Don ran his first marathon in 1998; Gillian in 1999. When they discovered even longer races and beautiful trail venues, they were both hooked. Between them, they have completed over 250 marathons and ultras, including the Western States 100, Badwater, 24-hour races and multi-day runs.

Don Lundell began running in 1998, when he decided that he would train for and run a marathon. Since then, he has run over 160 marathons and ultra marathons throughout the United States. His accomplishments include some of the toughest endurance runs in the country, with over a dozen runs of 100 miles or more. He has run the Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run three times. In 2001 he completed the Grand Slam of Ultrarunning, which consists of four rugged 100 mile races in the space of 4 months. The races were Western States, Vermont, Leadville and Wasatch, all of which Don was running for the first time. Don has run several 24-hour runs, with a PR of 112 miles. In July 2003, Don finished the Badwater Ultramarathon for the second time--135 miles through Death Valley from Badwater to Mount Whitney. One of Don's most creative runs was in May 2003, when he ran 114 miles to complete a Quadruple Quadruple of the Dipsea trail.

Gillian started running in 1997. In 1999, she completed her first marathon and became hooked on distance running, particularly runs on trails. Since then, she has completed over 100 races ranging from the marathon distance to 135 miles. She has run the Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run, in addition to 100 mile races in Texas and Arkansas. She finished first woman in the Ruth Anderson 100K in 2000 and in the Pony Express 50K in 2002. In the FANS 24 Hour Run in 2004, Gillian placed second with 104 miles. Gillian enjoys runs that she designs with Don. These have included a 100 mile run on Angel Island, and running the Western States course in reverse. Her favorite run was the 13 days that she and Don spent running the entire Bay Area Ridge Trail, including the dedicated trail and connecting road routes, totaling 500 miles.

Through their interaction with the running community and through their own experiences, Don and Gillian have learned about training, racing, injury prevention and treatment, nutrition, and more.
