Tracy Dahl

Howdy, runners! Many of you know me as the race director for the club’s Women’s Half Marathon, an event I’ve coordinated since 2012. I am also a current member of the VHTRC board.

Jon Jester

Happy Trails member for nearly 10 years. Volunteering is my passion. My experience in problem solving, relationship building, and inclusivity will serve the Club well.

Keith Knipling

VHTRC member since 1999. Board member since 2013. I have some institutional knowledge but will otherwise try to stay out of the way of the new ideas and energy of the new Board.

Chelsea Smith

I look forward to supporting our race directors, runners, and volunteers and continue the growth of a diverse and inclusive club.

Will Weidman

I joined VHTRC in 2008 and would be honored to join the Board to give back, help keep the club going strong, and expand our impact and reach in the community.
