Race Director Piper Ruiz

It's her love for the outdoors and running events that inspired Piper to pursue a career in race production. For over 10 years, she has provided services for over 500 client races in addition to producing her own portfolio of 55+ events. 

She's done everything from developing race courses, securing permits, booking vendors, measuring courses for USATF Certification, marking and sweeping courses, designing logos, coordinating volunteers, managing sponsor relations, timing, announcing, marketing, loading vehicles, to slinging barricades at 3 am for road closures.

When she's not running trails, she is playing pickle ball, reading or traveling internationally.
