Kris Brown is an ultrarunner based in Santa Barbara, California. While he specializes in hilly races in the 50k-100k range, he relentlessly competes in events of all distances, having finished top-ten at the 2018 Western States 100-miler just three weeks after running a sub-15 minute 5k on the track. Kris also "deep-dabbles" in obstacle racing, and he finished 5th at the 2019 Spartan Ultra World Championships.

A lifelong runner, Kris has experience with a wide variety of training styles, including introductory youth programs, classic collegiate training, and a much more free-form approach to ultrarunning.


He believes that there are more than a few ways to get fast, and he prefers to design training programs for his athletes that emphasize the parts of the sport that they love the most.
