Meet Your Coach, Stevie Kremer

Stevie Kremer was born in Germany, raised in Connecticut, and attended Colorado College. It wasn’t until she moved to Crested Butte and ran her first trail race that she realized how much she loves running on trails through the mountains. “Not only do I love exploring new mountains,” Stevie says, “but I enjoy every moment of meeting incredible people, learning new cultures, and taking in every new experience and opportunity I am presented with.”

Stevie became the 2012 Long Distance Mountain World Champion at the Jungfrau Marathon, the 2013 and 2014 Sky Runner World Champion, and came in 1st at the Red Bull Mt Yuzhu FKT in China. During the winter, she races on snow as a Ski-Mountaineer. In 2014, Stevie was the overall North American Champion, as well as the Vertical and Teams National Champion. Additionally, Stevie was part of the 2013 U.S. Ski Mountaineering Team and competed for the U.S. in France. She also qualified for the team in 2015.

Nowadays, you can find Stevie pulling or pushing her son up and down mountains in the stroller with wheels or skis. When she’s not on the go, she can be found in the Middle School Counseling office where she is the school counselor at the Crested Butte Community School for students in grades 6-8.
