Jeremy Long

Jeremy is the Race Director and owner of Daybreak Racing. Jeremy was born and raised on the Oregon Coast and according to his parents, has been a runner since before he could walk. Jeremy has been an avid trail runner, adventurer and idea guy for over 25 years, with extensive knowledge and experience on trails throughout the Pacific NW. He also discovered some years ago that his education and career in Public Health, especially Emergency Preparedness, Environmental Health and Health Promotion translates quite well to Race Directing.

He currently resides in Hillsboro, Oregon with his wife and two kids. When he’s not with his family, working or running, Jeremy aspires to make the perfect cup of coffee, home brew batches of ale and volunteer out on the trails.


Colton Gerhart

Colton grew up in rural Pennsylvania before moving out to the PNW shortly after graduating college. Currently living in Boise, Idaho, he can be found exploring the map from coastal excursions to Rocky Mountain adventures. Colton began running ultra marathons quickly after moving out west, driven by the scenery and people that surround the sport. He has completed distances that range from 50K to 120M, (mostly) smiling through the miles with every step.
