About Us

Inside Trail was founded by two avid fans of trail, mountain, and competitive ultra-running, seeking to provide a relaxed yet well-organized race environment to test your abilities while enjoying the beauty of our stunning west coast trails.

Tim Stahler¬†is new to the race management world, but brings a keen attention to detail, passion for all things running, and a freakishly organized mind to Inside Trail. He has been an avid runner since age 10, initially competing in AAU and TAC cross country meets and road races around the Washington D.C. area. He ran competitively throughout high school and in college at Syracuse University, where his senior year he was named team captain for Cross Country and Track. Tim spends most of his time training in the amazing East Bay park system with his dogs… racing anything from road 5Ks to trail marathons. He hopes to run his first 50K and 50 miler in 2012, gradually increasing the distance as he gets older and slower. From a young age, his greatest influences in the sport have been Pat Porter and Lynn Jennings. Today, the likes of Meltzer, Roes and Wardian provide him with motivation and inspiration to go longer and faster.
