Born in England, Marcus Nash’s family moved to the United States when he was 5-years-old, and settled in Maine when he was 7. He became an American citizen in 1989, and competed for the United States at the 1994 and 1998 Winter Olympics in cross-country skiing. Nash was a nine-time US Champion at various distances, and won a gold medal at the 2000 Goodwill Winter Games at Lake Placid.

Nash married Kateřina Hanušová, a Czech athlete who competed at five Olympics, twice in cross-country skiing (1998, 2002) and three times in mountain biking (1996, 2012, 2016). She competed as Kateřina Hanušová from 1996-2002, and as Kateřina Nash in 2012-16. They met while training in Squaw Valley and the Sierra Nevadas, while Hanušová was on a ski scholarship at the University of Colorado, although she later transferred to Nevada-Reno to be with Nash.
