MEET OUR Racing TEAM

Jared Burdick

Co-Owner, USATF Level 1 Coach


The single most driving factor behind my running is teamwork. I have been very fortunate in my whole career from high school, to college, and beyond to have a great teammates and coaches who have given me meaning and direction in my running. While having this support I have been able to grow into my own as a runner. I hope pass on what I have learned (and also learn new things on the way) in order to help others find their running passion.

Patrick Hallahan

In 2017 I started going to the Adirondacks and climbing the high peaks. I started running to get them done faster and that’s when my love for trail running became evident. Through hard physical efforts I found I was able to apply those techniques into my everyday life and it has been amazing. In 2019 I ran my first 50 mile and literally thought I’d never run again. Boy was I wrong! Running/racing has taken over my life and it is something I am dedicating myself to 100% to see where I can take this.

Bethany Titus

Simply put, this sport continues to help keep me in a positive mental state of mind. It has been a part of my entire adult life and all aspects of it are incorporated into my daily routine. It’s been with me through all my seasons of life. It’s taught me to accept my failures, insecurities and fears. It’s taught me how to forgive, to adapt, and to grow as a person. It’s allowed me to challenge myself and has been a constant reminder that life is not linear.

 

Trail running, ultra distances, and climbing mountains are my jam! I absolutely love big days on my feet and seeing what I am capable of. Nothing ventured, nothing gained!

Brianna Sprole

Running clears her head, centers and grounds her, sweetens her mood, empowers her, lets her work out problems, and connects her not just to the earth that she runs on, but also with the people around her. Brianna runs mostly solo, but when she runs with a team or at a race, she feels so supported and welcomed by an amazing running community. Running has given her a new life. A perspective she'd never expected to have, and it's made her who she is.
