The WDQ Team

Conrad

I am an immigrant from Uganda, Africa. Became an outdoor junkie when I moved to VA in 2017. Being outside brings me peace and happiness. Nothing beats blue skies, sunny weather and hiking, backpacking or biking through the woods.

Safiya

I am a HAZMAT attorney from Inglewood, California. Growing up, I always had an interest in the ways in which the natural environment can restore the body both physically and spiritually. Outdoor activities, like hiking, biking, and running, help me test my physical and mental limits and give me a deeper connection to the world around me.

Dana

I am a rocket scientist from Southern California. Growing up I did a 250 mile bike ride and orienteering with the science Olympiad. I enjoyed physical and mental challenges. Watching an Iron man competition I knew I wanted to do one but hated the idea of having to swim. Adventure racing is the perfect competition for me!

Shay

I am just a regular person enjoying the process of expanding my cadre of what I call regular things. I’ve become a fun-seeker who finds happiness, challenge, and peace outdoors. I like to be active, I like to be outside, and I like to challenge myself. But I take the most joy in inspiring others who look like me to get out and enjoy this great thing called nature. Whether solo or with a group hiking, biking, kayaking or canoeing, I just love seeing people of color taking up space in nature. I am here to do my part in helping WDQ continue to get more people of color outdoors and into adventure racing!
