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!”

Kyla Claudell, Headquarters Manager

Kyla was lucky enough to grow up on the front range in Colorado and fell deeply in love with mountains and trails. Her goal most days is to spend more time outside than inside and she’s up for anything –  run, bike, snowboard, raft, climb, or backpack. Kyla has helped produce trail races and support ultra runners for the last five years and she thinks she has the best job on the planet! Kyla’s favorite events are backcountry adventures that bring runners into remote and beautiful locations and let them really test their limits.
