Christian Gering is a multimedia artist and trail runner hailing from Katishyta (San Felipe Pueblo) and the Pi’pil people of El Salvador. He recently designed several prints and graphics for Janji’s Fall/Winter 2021 running apparel line– American Southwest. His creative inspiration is heavily linked to his passion for movement. Christian is known for translating his experiences of running up peaks, down arroyos, and across a variety of landscapes into feelings, emotions, and ideas in the form of visual art. Gering has had several top finishes at international races including wins at the 2015 Bandera 50K, 2018 Jemez Mountain 50-Miler, and the 2019 Javelina 100K. He also holds the course record at the latter two races. After a decade of competing professionally, he tells us about his plans to pursue his passions creatively as he dives into the many meanings, purposes, and intentions behind why we move.
