Mountain Goat Kids was created by a group of five fathers who built a friendship while running the trails along Denver’s front range. As runners and parents, we feel compelled to expose children to the amazing—and often humbling—experiences of spending time outdoors.


Our trail series was created with the goal of challenging children to live healthy and active lifestyles. Through these fun activities, kids develop an intrinsic appreciation for nature’s playground.

Heath kirschner

A Colorado native, Heath grew up with a love of the mountain. Today he is passionate about passing that awe and respect to his two daughters. Heath has competed in triathlons, marathons, and ultra-marathons, including the Boston Marathon and North Face Endurance Challenge.


Paul landry

Originally from Florida, Paul and his family of four have quickly developed an appreciation for the Rocky Mountains and Colorado’s beautiful year-round weather. Although Paul likes to call himself the “senior citizen” of the group, his feats — which include completing the legendary Leadville 100 and finishing the Boston Marathon in staggering time year after year — are quite impressive.
