Race Director: Chuck George
Event management since 1983
Sometime in 2016 we will have produced our 1000th Race event. Each race is an adventure and one in which we learn to do better as we go.
We cater to the opinions and idea's of our staff, volunteers and runners and walkers that participate in our events.
We have plenty of equipment to handle most any size run-walk event.
Our team includes John Melvin with Timed Sports Systems who brings lots of equipment to each race. Randy and Beth Houle with STARR timing do most of our event chip timing. Mike Duplass is a fantastic Assistant Race Director who on day of race does most of the course coordination. Jackie Wolverton coordinates a super registration krewe. Jan Beamont is in charge of t-shirts, Namon Huddleston leads the way at the Start and Finish line area. Ken Mire along with several others coordinate results processing. Ken Killian is our official photographer. Duke Wolveton coordinates site and safety issues and is best at critiquing the race director. Martha George has the toughest task being the Race Directors wife, she does most everything, while he gets the credit !!
