 Nathan White @nwhite1024  As a child, he was unable to grasp the long-term impact of growing up on his grandparents farm in the summer or the fishing trips he took with my father. Looking back, Nathan can see his early childhood set the stage for a lifetime of adventure and exploration. In his adulthood, he has spent time in Lake Tahoe, Breckenridge, Aspen, Vail, Sequoia Kings Canyon National Park and Yosemite. Today he reside in Columbus, Ohio, where he’s thankful for the many opportunities available through simply getting out and finding them.

 Zanne Willis @liveincolorlife  Zanne likes to do a little bit of everything. With a full and partial knee replacement she was told she couldn’t run or hike. She now proudly is a mid pack ultra runner and triathlete. You’ll most likely see her on trail with her dog, Sake who at 11 is running marathons and climbing mountains. They both love SALVation.

 Dave Griffin @dave_griffin68  Uncle Dave on most days can be found at one of two places: at the Ultra Running Company or at the U.S. National Whitewater Center on a trail. He’s run a lot of miles in his days, and he considered himself to not be much of a racer, but his experience proves otherwise. He’s tough as nails. He loves to make a goal to challenge himself and conquer it. Dave has great stories and is one of the most straight shooters you’ll ever meet. We love Uncle Dave.

 Brian Paisley @paisley.bryan  Raised in the coastal hills north of San Francisco, Bryan is no stranger to trail running. However, by his late teens Bryan took leave from the joys of running in nature, not to return until his late 40’s. After 10 years clean and sober he looked to ultra trail running as a way of strengthening his sobriety and spiritual connection.

 Chris Gorney @mountainbighadventures  Chris Gorney is this crazy mountain climber guy who runs long distances and summits peaks. No one really knows him, they just know of him. His name is in all the summit registers, but almost always solo. He seems to like to climb direct routes and follow natural land features if you follow his Strava. Someone once said he's never run the same trail twice even though he averages over 50 trail miles a week. Hes always finding new routes and exploring new places. And if you're ever lucky enough to run into him on a peak, he will likely try to pass you a joint.
