The Team

Higher Running is a small business based in Boulder, Colorado. It was created by Coach Sandi Nypaver and Coach Sage Canaday to help empower runners with coaching advice, training plans, and media/resources for events from the 5km to 100-miles (or #AnySurfaceAnyDistance) as we like to say! As a small person team we really appreciate your support and loyalty!

The team also includes Coach Ray Nypaver (Lydiard II certified coach, 100-mile ultra champion at Virgil Crest 100 , and a Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with Transpersonal Wilderness Therapy) and her dog Pacer… our Pawsitivity Coach!

Finally, Trevor Sooy is our amazing social media manager/customer service manager who has helped us implement many positive changes to Higher Running. 

Let’s train at a Higher level.
Let’s climb Higher summits.
Let’s live with Higher meaning.
Let’s run Higher, together.
