Matt Palilla



Skout Backcountry Ambassador Matt PalillaUltra runner Matt Palilla has had quite a successful running career. 2014 brought him a sub-24-hour finish at the Western States 100, and he placed third overall at the 2015 White River 50 Miler.

2016 was a big year for Matt. His training for Maryland’s 54th annual JFK 50 Miler brought him to first place in the Portland Marathon in October. One month later, he placed fifth in the JFK 50 – a very competitive field in the oldest ultramarathon in the U.S.

Skout works for me because of what they're made from: simple, good ingredients. Everything in them is what I normally snack on, so having them in packed in a bar makes adventures much easier.”
