The Team

Ryan Jenkins

Ryan Jenkins

Chief Marketing Officer

Ryan claims to be a “product in infinite beta”. He loves hamburgers and peanut butter (but not together) and he should run more. He also really enjoys writing bios in the 3rd person.

Anna Basso

Marketing & Design

Anna likes being the quiet but witty person in the group. She likes working with the creative team to give runners a great experience. In her spare time Anna is either playing sports, enjoying the outdoors, perfecting a new dessert, or working on a craft. She also loves dill pickles. One of her favorite ways to recharge is to take in the desert solitude running the trails of So. Utah.

Cherie Santiago

Cherie Santiago


Cherie may live in Southern Utah but her soul still lives in Southern California where she grew up surfing and sailing in the sun. Her love for the outdoors hasn’t changed and she can be spotted running or biking around the trails or biking through Zion National Park to find more trails to run on.

Cherie has been working with us on our race crew since our inaugural run in Zion and is has found her perfect position to continue to bring the best of our events to everyone participating. After all you can’t spell customer service with out CS! Basically… she was born for this job.

Kaelee Clifford

Customer Care

Kaelee grew up in beautiful Southern Utah with Zion National Park as her backyard, and it's still one of her favorite places to visit - a lot for the views but also for the food. She is our customer service representative and has the answer to all (or most) of your questions so don't hesitate to ask away!

Lyle Anderson’s journey began almost seven years ago. Diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis on his 30th birthday, Lyle was told that in five to 10 years he could be in a wheelchair.

Lyle, now 37, says he went through a period of depression and felt defeated. In 2010 he was invited by his Father-in-law to run his first Marathon. Since then he has ran 9 Marathons and about 43 – 1/2 Marathons. He has since then added Triathlon to his resume. He has completed 8 – 1/2 Ironman distance races and 2 – full distance Ironman events. One of them being the Ironman World Championship in 2013 in Kona, HI.
