In 2014, Todd, who grew up skiing in Tahoe, heard about the first-of-its-kind Tahoe 200 and knew he had to be a part of the medical team. He emailed Candice and two weeks later, agreed to be the medical director. After saying “yes” to this, his life has never been the same. Todd has a passion for emergency medicine and years of experience to boot – he’s worked everywhere from an ambulance to one of the busiest trauma centers in Arizona. Wilderness medicine is his secret to finding a balance with it all. He’s an EMT, a WFR and EDT. Todd says he’s blessed to be able to combine his three passions: helping others, medicine and Mother Nature. Todd’s motto is “Be bold, be kind, be safe and be awesome!”
Riley Smith, Race Staff
Riley was born and raised in small town in Eastern Oregon. He was inspired to run by watching his brothers and sisters run when he was little. After running in high school Riley transitioned to triathlons for 4 years before discovering his love for trail running. Spending time on the trails and exploring the mountains is what makes him happy. Riley started off his running career with a few road marathons and then on to a few 50ks followed by a 100k. Riley first met the Destination Trail Crew at the 2016 Bigfoot 200 and never left. He loves being around like minded people who share the passion for the trails and mountains. Riley's motto is, "Do what you love and you will never work a day in your life!"
