Meet our Team "The Four Runners"

About the "Four Runners"

The Four Runners are a group of senior engineering students at NAU working to design an off-highway vehicle test course for Findlay Toyota in Flagstaff,Arizona. The team consists of four members, each with their own preference within the civil engineering field, which helped to create a diverse range of abilities available to the project.

Our team name is a play on the Toyota 4Runner, one of the vehicles the team is designing the course for. It is a play on the spelling of the vehicle and the fact that there are four team members.

Below, you can find our four team members, Miranda, Malik, William, and Trandon. Additionally, you can find our grading instructor Mark Lamer and our technical advisor, Jeremy Degeyter.
