About Our TeamProud to be a family run business.
The team at Miles to Go Endurance: Jess, West and Ryan Knapp
Miles to Go Endurance (MTGE) was founded in August 2012 to provide personalized training for runners in an online team environment to athletes anywhere in the world.
MTGE is proud to be a family run company, consisting of the husband and wife duo, Ryan and Jessica Knapp, and their young son, West. As if their car isn’t full enough, they have two Border Collies, Pace and Mollie, who you will see running the trails all over the United States.
We are a mobile team, and we love to be on the road whenever possible, criss crossing the roads in our Honda Pilot. When we are “home”, you can find us in Melrose, Massachusetts a few miles north of Boston.

Jess doesn’t just plan the trips, she is on the front lines running and hiking and participating in every adventure. She is passionate about making all trips family friendly since the arrival of her son, West, in April of 2016. When she’s not working on Adventure Vacations, she’s an AVP at a Fortune 100 company.
Head Travel Buddy, Director of Fun :: West is the youngest member of the MTGE Team. We welcomed him into this world in April 2016. He’s a travel veteran already, having visited five countries and fourteen (14) states! Yes, he has his own baby passport and yes, it’s adorable. His two favorite things are his Thule Chariot Running Stroller and his Kelty Kids Hiking Backpack. He is the reason that all Adventure Vacations are family friendly. We also think he’s the cutest kid ever.
