Cat Bradley


My running journey began as an 800-meter runner at UC-Santa Barbara, where I quickly realized that my spirit was not on the track, but in the mountains. Craving a little adventure and needing to do some self-exploration, I thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail with very little experience. In fact, the warmest article of clothing I packed was my cotton track-suit coupled with a poncho, and I had no idea sleeping pads even existed. However difficult it was, my love for the trails was ignited and has guided my choices since.

My performance at the Bear 100 in 2015 (23:02, 7th fastest time in history) triggered a competitive side in a sport I had previously approached fairly casually. In 2016, I upped my volume from twenty miles per week resulting in a season of podiums and a few wins.

In November of 2016, I won Rio Del Lago 100, coming in under the previous 11-year-old course record. After a hard winter of training and dark mornings balanced with a full-time job as a kindergarten teacher, I was rewarded with a successful 2017 season including a win at the Western States 100.

  • The 2017 Western States 100 Win- toughest conditions the race has ever seen. 13th overall
  • Ultra Trail Mont Du Blanc 6th place women, 1st American women, 3rd American over-all, Fastest top ten women in race history

  • Canyons Endurance Run 100k Win minutes of the course record (Course record held by three-time Olympian and Western States 100 champ Magdalena Boulet). 5th overall
  • Rio Del Lago 100 win and course record. 6th overall

Skyler Kottenstette


Coach Sky is the definition of a multisport athlete — she learned how to swim before she could walk, and has been pushing the boundaries and distance ever since through triathlon, gravel cycling, ultrarunning, and mountaineering. Moving from competitive swimming to collegiate triathlon to ultrarunning/cycling, Sky has had experience racing in every distance from 5k to ultras and has competed in ITU World Championships, USAT Collegiate Nationals and Age Group Nationals. But most of her experience as an athlete and coach was found in challenging solo adventures such as the Wonderland Trail 100, White Rim 100, and bucket-list ultracycling routes.

Sky is passionate about sharing her enthusiasm for sport through coaching — her aim is to help athletes push their limits and accomplish their racing goals, but more importantly to cultivate healthy habits and love for sport that will last a lifetime.

Working full time in aerospace engineering, Sky has experienced the demands of balancing work, school, training, and family and embodies the ‘whole athlete’ approach to training. She helps athletes with limited time prioritize their goals and understand the importance of striking the balance between discipline in training versus flexibility.

With 10+ years experience coaching swimmers, ultrarunners, and triathletes through her business independently and through Life Time Fitness, Sky emphasizes athlete-coach connection, data-driven training progression, and injury prevention.

Jonathan (Jon) Clinthorne, PHD


Jonathan (Jon) Clinthorne is an ultraendurance athlete with a doctorate in Human Nutrition from Michigan State University. Growing up as a competitive swimmer, the idea of training for 2 hours a day when training for ultramarathons did not seem outlandish, so he jumped right in. During college he decided to pursue nutrition as a full-time career, falling in love with the biochemistry of ultraendurance athletics. He has run over 50 ultramarathons, including twelve 100 mile races. Jon has self-experimented with just about every nutrition approach and over the years found what works and doesn’t work. He specializes in evidenced based nutrition counseling that is combined with his deep practical knowledge of sport. His philosophy is that there is no “one size fits-all” approach to endurance nutrition and instead prefers to work with his clients to determine which evidence-based approach will fit them best. He serves on the Board of Directors along with being the Course Director for the High Lonesome 100. When not running you can find Jon skiing or hiking in the mountains of Colorado.

Brad Stahlman


My name is Brad Stahlman and I am an athlete who doesn't come from a running background. Entering into this lifestyle of training as an endurance athlete required a lot of dedication and support along the way.

I have not always been considered an athlete. I’m 16 years into a lifestyle transformation from 80 lbs. overweight and inactive, to an accomplished ultrarunner and coach. This transformation continues every day and started with a shift in my mindset. This shift started when I realized I had difficulty playing in the yard with my daughters due to my physical health. My family of four daughters and my beautiful wife mean the world to me, and my life purpose revolves around faith, family, fitness, and fellowship. Honoring this purpose is what made me take that first step toward becoming an endurance athlete.

I love ultrarunning because it keeps me healthy, but equally, it teaches me about life. It has taught me about endurance, perseverance, fellowship with a supportive community, and faith - in my ability to relentlessly keep moving forward.

My successful journey has given me a platform to encourage and build up others looking for that same transformation. Significant individuals poured into me, convincing me I could do more with each step. Now it's my turn – to help others accomplish feats most people believe are impossible. You can do tough stuff! I know what it takes to make it through the finish line, and I can help you get there too.

Zack Russell


Zachary "Zack" Russell is an ultraendurance athlete living in the high mountains of Breckenridge, Colorado. I began running while a freshman in college after a trail run with some friends over Spring break and could barely keep up. After that the rest is history, I went back to school and devoted myself to running. I began trail running in 2016 while in grad school in Colorado Springs with my first trail race being Pikes Peak ascent. I love competing in all types of endurance events including gravel/mountain bike races, ultrarunning, bikepacking, and cookie eating contests.

I am passionate about helping others achieve their endurance and race goals. I enjoy learning about the entire athlete. Their life, nutrition, family, other hobbies, and what makes them different. I have had the opportunity to enjoy many experiences and have educated myself in multiple aspects related to endurance sports including training, nutrition, and strength training.

I continue to enjoy long adventures in the high alpine of Colorado, summiting 14ers, chasing mountain goats, eating more than enough cookies, and competing in the occasional trail race.
