About Us

Founded 2017 in Bennington, Vermont, our mission is simple: get more people out there! Whatever your thing is, we got you, from mile to multiday.

 

Whether your happy place is on the road, trail, or track, we offer events throughout the year to put some 'heck yeah!' in your miles. Built by runners; we get it. 

Through partnerships with local businesses, charities, and community organizations, as well as encouraging runners to participate on their own, our aim is to give back to the community that is so central to our core values and the outdoors!

The team

Adam 

Co-founder & Race Director

Adam grew up in Dorset, Vermont running the trails and roads of the Taconic Mountains from his front door. He founded Nor'east in 2017 to serve the greater running community and fuel his passion for the trails. When he's not working on recipes for the races, you can find him climbing or skiing whenever he can sneak in some turns. He met Eliza, the serious half of Nor'east Trail Runs, in 2013. The pair clicked immediately after Eliza mentioned "this hundred miler that ends in Auburn," and the rest is history.

Eliza 

Co-founder & Race Director

A California native, Eliza was hooked on ultras before she ran her first 5k. Despite growing up with buffed out trails extending in every direction, she immediately fell in love with Vermont's steep, rocky terrain. She loves exploring the mountains and running long ultras. When she's not running, she's probably geeking out on CalTopo planning a new route. A serious cat lover, Eliza dreams of bringing their two ragdoll cats mountaineering -- Adam isn't so sure.

Patrick 

Marketing & Social Media Manager

Patrick is an elite New England-based Mountain-Ultra-Trail athlete. After getting an early start, Patrick has racked up numerous trail and road race wins, course records, and FKTs, including the 2017 USATF-New England Ultra Championships and a pair of Ghost Trail 100-miler wins, one of them in an age-record 13:50. 

Patrick helped to launch the renowned Boston Bulldogs Running Club, a non-profit to support those affected and in recovery from addiction, and remains a dedicated coach and volunteer. We're encouraging him to find some non-running-related hobbies.
