Thomas Smiley

Thomas enjoys time with his wife, two daughters, and son. Thomas makes time to train for long mountain events such as the Bear100, IMTUf100, Standhope60K and Speadgoat 50K. These events aren’t about speed, but willingness to push further.

Thomas’s favorite part of Runaway Mountain Retreats is running on tired feet. He is an Ambassador for Lululemon : Sun Valley. He is also Race Director to Ketchum’s Legends Never Die – Half Marathon & 55K Race. Talk to Thomas if interested in both Runaway Mountain Retreat & Legends Never Die.


Jakub Galczynski

Jakub and his fiancé Delilah live a 1/2 mile from the Sun Valley Mountain, so that they may quickly access the trails after work. Jakub focuses on consistent uphill climbs and time-on-feet. He has podiumed a few Idaho ultras and dabbles in the competitive field. Lately Jakub’s been checking-off classic events such as Hardrock100 and UTMB – CCC. Otherwise he admires races associated with the Idaho Trail Ultra Series (ITUS) and is looking to better align Runaway Mountain Retreats with them, as an ideal training outlet.

Jakub’s favorite part of Runaway Mountain Retreats is sharing trails with friends. Jakub run as an UltrAspire and Honeystinger Athlete.
