Kris is a recent transplant to Fort Collins, coming most recently by way of Minnesota. He came to the sport of trail and ultra running through rock climbing, being drawn by a passion for adventure, challenge, and community engagement. And also a tendency to dive headfirst into new outdoor activities which – on the running and racing front – started in 2011 with road marathoning and progressed in 2015 to 100 mile trail racing with a sprinkling of Iron Man’ing along the way.
In 2017, Kris placed Top-10 at two mountain 100 mile races (10th Bighorn, 6th Bear) while setting a 21hr 41min PR. In 2018, Kris has his sights set on bettering his Bighorn 100 mile time and taking down the 200 mile distance at the Tahoe 200.
“As a trail ultra novice, and being new to mountain life, the sky’s the limit on adventure and I’m truly enjoying the ride.”
