Kristal was born and raised in Washington. She loves the mountains whether she is running trails or playing in the snow. Kristal found her love for running in 2005 when her youngest child was 1. Originally running road half and full marathons, she discovered her love for trail running in 2009 at her first trail race on Orcas Island and never looked back. Kristal has run many trail ultras and still to this day her favorite distance is 50 miles. When she isn’t racing, you can find her volunteering at races, enjoying her three children or on an adventure spent running the trails in the mountains, taking photos and enjoying a good local beer!

Riley Smith, Race Organizing Team

Riley was born and raised in small town in Eastern Oregon.  He became inspired to run by watching his brothers and sisters run when he was young. After running in high school Riley transitioned to triathlons for 4 years before fully finding my true love, trail running! Being out on the trails exploring the mountains are what makes him happy.  Riley started off with a few road marathons and then on to a few 50ks followed by a 100k. He first met the Destination Trail Crew at the 2016 Bigfoot 200 and never left.. he loves being around like minded people who share a passion for the trails and mountains. His motto is, “Do what you LOVE and you will never work a day in your life!”

Todd Nardi, Medical Director

In 2014, Todd, who grew up skiing in Tahoe, heard about the first-of-its-kind Tahoe 200 and knew he had to be a part of the medical team. He emailed Candice and two weeks later, agreed to be the medical director. After saying “yes” to this, his life has never been the same. Todd has a passion for emergency medicine and years of experience to boot – he’s worked everywhere from an ambulance to one of the busiest trauma centers in Arizona. Wilderness medicine is his secret to finding a balance with it all. He’s an EMT, a WFR and EDT. Todd says he’s blessed to be able to combine his three passions: helping others, medicine and Mother Nature. Todd’s motto is “Be bold, be kind, be safe and be awesome!”
