We're Better Together
The truth is, we can run, swim, walk or ride whenever we want. We have fancy watches that tell us every stat we could ever want. We post pictures on social media and everyone can see what we've accomplished. So why do we need a special event?
Because something amazing happens when we gather together. Authentic moments are shared. Encouragement runs wild. Accountability is everywhere. Goals are achieved. PR's are crushed. We celebrate what we've done and push each other towards improvement. This is so much more than a run, swim or ride.
Since 2011, iDaph has been creating and curating race events in Western North Carolina. We see the personal impact a great event can have and continually raise the bar on what we offer. We strive to create inspiring and memorable experiences that elevate physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
Meet the Team
We are small but mighty. This group of passionate and creative individuals are the guiding force behind the iDaph events. Together with our awesome volunteers, we collaborate to create racing events that celebrate fitness, community and an active outdoor lifestyle.
Founder, Owner & Race Dynamo
Daphne is passionate about keeping bodies moving and loves creating, designing and producing events that encourage people to do so. She is a mother, cancer survivor and avid fitness enthusiast.
Administrative Super Hero
Amy holds it all together. From 1000's of registrations, to packet pickup, she keeps it all straight. She is a wife, mother, and distance runner. In fact, Amy loves those ice-cold days more than anyone we know.
From race swag to custom medals, Allison creates all the fresh designs our events are known for. She juggles creativity with the craziness of being the mom of two little ones and running whenever she can.
Conrad knows exactly where things are and needs to be in the warehouse and understand how everything works. If there is a supply or equipment question he knows. Give him a list and he is a happy man!
As an avid runner and cyclist, Kevin uses his wit and humor to keep us all smiling on race days. He is part of the behind the scenes crew that sets up everything before you even wake up in the morning.
Photo Biker Guy
You've probably seen him zipping around the course on his bike to capture photos and videos. If you didn't notice him, maybe you saw the big "smile" sign around his neck!

From Hendersonville, Julia meets the demands of event production head on. She is extremely versatile and sees what needs to be done and just goes for it. Typically you will find her at the merchandise, packet pickup or timing areas at the races.
Joyous Pit Crew

With her infectious energy and passion for endurance sports, Crystal keeps the volunteers and vendors organized and ensures the awards ceremony runs like a well-oiled machine. When she's not crushing races or supporting her fellow athletes, you'll find this breast cancer survivor soaking up quality time with her family and celebrating all that life has to offer.
Jen is the ultimate behind-the-scenes powerhouse; seamlessly coordinating volunteers and ensuring that they are all accounted for and in place on race day.
