Kristian Andres is a 35 year old trail runner born and bred in Manitoba, Canada. Once a licensed physiotherapist, Kristian went back to school in 2016 and now works as a Physician Assistant. He grew up doing functional training before it was a thing, chasing cows out of the trees on his family farm and found himself excelling at local track and field days in grade school. His path from high school and university track and field eventually led him to discover trail running. Together with his fiancee, Nicole, Kristian founded Trails of ‘Toba as a place to promote adventure in Manitoba and directs three races under the brand name. Each race is unique and designed to provide those of all skill and ability levels an opportunity to experience trails.
