Meet The Staff
Get to know the people behind Gemini Adventures!
Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, Reid moved to Boulder, CO in 1994 where he still lives today. Reid loves to stay active and has dedicated himself to a number of sports over the years including wrestling, rock climbing, adventure racing, ultrarunning, Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) cagefighting, and mountain biking.
Reid has participated in some of the biggest racing and endurance events including the Leadville 100 bike and run, Hardrock 100, the Eco Challenge, and everything from snowshoe races to Ironman distance triathlons. As a self-proclaimed “untalented athlete,” Reid is always looking for the next great challenge and opportunity to push his limits.
Reid continues to create his own adventures and loves bringing these to others. Whether canyoneering in Moab or running 14ers, he loves to experience new adventures with his friends.
Kyla loves mountain biking, gravel biking, big summits, snowboarding, rafting, and backpacking. Always up for an adventure, she’s looking forward to another year of helping athletes achieve success at some of the most challenging and transforming races on the planet.
Volunteer Coordinator/Course Safety & Operations
Amanda knows how to take care of everyone out there! As a coach and former firefighter she is an expert on knowing how to support athletes pushing themselves to the limit. An organizational ninja, she makes sure that everything is organized and ready to go for race day!
Chris grew up in the Midwest but his love of the mountains and outdoors brought him to Colorado in 2001. He has been active in athletics his entire life, playing multiple sports through college and beyond, but running has been his passion. From 5K to 100 miles, he has run countless races and still continues to push his limits in the ultra world. Chris is a former teacher and coach who moved into recreation and race management in the mid 00's and is very excited to join the Gemini Adventures team. When he's not on the trails, Chris loves traveling with his family, attending concerts and hosting a weekly bar trivia.
Course Coordinator and Photography
Eszter hangs ribbons from trees to help guide people through difficult, and hopefully meaningful, life experiences and will be there to capture images of personal transformation.
She's been living the digital nomad life for nearly a decade, wandering the west in search of good weather, mountain bike and running trails, and rivers to float. In a past life she specialized in self-supported multi-day bikepacking racing on routes that weren't marked and had to be followed with a GPS. The irony of the fact that she's now in charge of marking race courses is not lost on her.
Eszter is the co-founder of The Town Bicycle (thetownbicycle.com), a women-driven bikes-are-awesome website that aims to tell the stories of amazing women in the riding community. Photography and telling stories make her happy!
About Gemini Adventures
Founded in 2003, Gemini Adventures creates backcountry racing experiences for all levels of runners and bikers. We believe in fostering a fun and supportive environment where athletes can show their prowess on competitive courses with spectacular surroundings. Our events are perfect for anyone seeking a unique adventure or challenging race.
Since our organization was founded, Gemini has grown bigger and bigger each year, and so have our events. Our races are like family affairs and parties as we welcome an increasing number of participants and people into our community. Sign up for one of our events today to see what makes our community so special!
Gemini is built around three core values which we embody at every one of our races or events:
- Community – We put on festivals to bring people together on and off the trails.
- Adventure – We believe that getting out of your comfort zone and getting outside are the best ways to feel alive; a little adventure is always good for the soul.
- Support – We take care of our athletes on and off the trail by providing challenges that are safe and welcoming for them, their friends and families, and our crew.
Competing in endurance events takes commitment and running these events take just as much dedication. At Gemini Adventures, we’re dedicated to our core values at every step of the way so everyone who takes part in our races can feel confident knowing that we are looking out for them.
