The Dirty Bird Team
Over the past ten years, Ryan has served as a development director, event organizer, and cross country and track coach. He does just about everything: social media management, marketing, web design, drone photography, course design, accounting, and the list goes on. His running and triathlon career led him to compete in many races across the country, and his passion for endurance sports is evident whether he is a participant or producing events for others to enjoy.
Ani has logged countless hours working at races all over Tennessee, usually with a camera in one hand and a walkie-talkie in the other. She is a certified USAT Level 1 Race Director, health educator, and photographer. She cares deeply about contributing to the outdoor community, and serves as a Little Bellas mentor and an ambassador to lululemon Knoxville. Ani has competed in several triathlons and other races, but she prefers spending time out on the trails just for fun- especially on a mountain bike.
