Dave Kriz

Adventure Racer

Dave’s athletic background has centered around Track and Field. He was a high school state record holder in the high jump many years ago. He continued to compete collegiately and post-collegiately, until adult life took over. Early on, Dave developed a passion for the outdoors, be it climbing, hiking, canyoneering, or cycling. Through his adventure, he discovered the sport of Adventure Racing. He and his wife Lisa compete together as a team in these multi-discipline endurance events.

Dave began his journey toward a vegan lifestyle about 6 years ago. He is proud to represent Vegan Athlete Racing as an athlete who is only getting more fit on a plant based diet.

Finding time to train can be challenging sometimes, with 3 kids at home and working as a High School Adventure Education Teacher, but the family gets out as often as possible disguising training as playing in the mountains.
