Bellingham Lead Coach, Ultra/Trail running champion, Race Director and Author
Raised in Bow, Washington Krissy Moehl has always loved looking at mountains, but it wasn’t until she joined the team in the early days of the Seattle Running Company that she learned to explore them. Trail running for over 16 years now has not only challenged her personal perceived limits it has taught her important skills and many life lessons. Her long running resume includes over 100 ultra races, 55 female wins and iconic FKT’s (Fastest Known Times) including the Wonderland Trail 93 miles and most recently the Tahoe Rim Trail 170 miles. Moehl most recently authored a training manual titled Running Your First Ultra: Customizable Training Plans for Your First 50k to 100-Mile Race.

Bellingham Coach, Ultra-Trail and Marathon Runner
I have been running roads and trails of Washington State for over 34 years. I started in junior high track and high school track and cross country. In college I ran for fun and fitness and it wasn't until after having kids that I decided to train for marathons. A few years later I attempted my first ultra (Chuckanut 50k). I have enjoyed over 60 ultra races (almost all placing in top ten) and countless marathons since that first Chuckanut! I have been lucky enough to work with several great coaches over the years and have learned good techniques from each of them. I also coached Sedro Woolley High School track in 1998.

Bellingham Coach, Ultra-Trail & Marathon Runner, Teacher & HS Coach
I have been a teacher and a coach for the last 27 years with the last 17 years at Sehome High in Bellingham. Since 1999, I have been able to work with other talented coaches to create one of the largest cross-country teams in the state. Our teams have been very successful winning 15 state team championships in the last 17 years with 6 individual state champions as well.
I also have the luxury of training on the trails here in Bellingham in preparation for a few local races, including the Chuckanut 50k with a best time of 4:24:54 in 2013 and a course win at the Mt Si 50k in 2012 (3:36.08).
I am passionate about running on these trails and growing the Bellingham Running Community.
