About Candice


I like to run really far. Really, really far. I'm a professional runner and a full time business owner. I'm obsessed with maps and creating routes in the mountains. In fact this obsession turned into my profession. What used to be a weird niche passion, became my work and now I create adventures for the adventurous full time through my company Destination Trail, a race organization and management company I created and manage.

I'm also host and producer for Humans of Ultraruning podcast. You can find my podcast on your favorite podcast app or at the website Humansofultrarunning.com. It's not your usual podcast, we delve into deeper topics, psychology and stories from extreme athletes.

I enjoy using all the tools I can to explore and I love mountain biking, backcountry skiing, slacklining, yoga and anything that keeps me moving in addition to trail running which will always be my first love due to its perfect simplicity. I am also a single mom to two amazing girls. For as much as I love running adventures, I appreciate and am grateful for my family and the adventure that is being a parent. There's nothing better than coming home to family.

Race Organization 
When I'm not running, writing, podcasting or causing trouble I work as a race director organizing a trail race marathon/half marathon/ultra series in Washington State as well as the first single loop 200 mile trail race in the USA, the Tahoe 200, and the Bigfoot 200 mile/ 100k/40mi/20mi races, point-to-point trail races in the Cascade Mountains and the Moab 240 Endurance Run. My company Destination Trail, LLC, organizes some of the most scenic, challenging and, well, LONG trail races in the USA. I created the first three non-repetitive 200 mile races in the USA. I call it the Triple Crown of 200s. It's the ultimate endurance challenge!

I run with support from AltraUltimate Direction, Spring Energy, LEKI and rabbit.

I love hearing from you. Please feel free to send me feedback at runcandicerun@gmail.com or comment on my posts. You can also reach me about work related questions at: racedirector@destinationtrailrun.com

Be the mountain: be playful, be wild, be dangerous but never, never be boring.
