2022-2023 BOARD MEMBERS.
Director, Equipment and Staging
Webmaster, Director of Marketing
Bio: Janet finds running a great way to de-stress, and soak up some fresh air after too many work hours in an office. Most weekends she can be found at some running event, whether local or out of state. Janet runs the Honolulu Marathon annually along with half marathons in Oakland, Alameda, Seattle, San Jose and Indianapolis. Janet joined the ARR Board in 2017.
Chief Operating Officer
Bio: Norm started running about a year after he moved to Arizona, at the start of 1982. Golf just wasn’t providing enough exercise. He enjoys all aspects of running including his role on the Board of the Arizona Road Racers. He also enjoys leading the running intervals at Shadow Mountain High School each Tuesday evening. Many of his best friends are runners.
Bio: Erin started running in 2008 as a way to change up her workout routine, and hasn’t stopped since. She has run over 100 races, including 9 half marathons and three OCRs. She loves how ARR keeps racing going even during the brutal summer months. Erin has made a lot of great friends through ARR and is looking forward to giving back to the running community. Erin is new to the Board for 2018.
Bio: Hal is a national legend with his impressive run streak. He started running in high school and college, and then basically did not run again until early 1989. Once he started again, he didn’t stop. He first came in contact with ARR at the Jerome Hill Climb in 2005. Shortly thereafter he became a board member to give back to the running community, after having done very little in the way of volunteering up until then.
Director, Volunteer Coordinator
Bio: Katherine started running in 2005 to live a healthier and more active life style. After meeting so many friendly and supportive running fanatics, her love of racing and leisurely running grew and led to her healthy running addiction. Her role as the VP of Special and Social Events allows her to give back to the running community by planning fun, non-competitive running events that everyone can enjoy.
Director, Race Timing
Bio: Omar started running in October 1994 as part of a school program called “Students Run Los Angeles,” a program that trains students to run the LA Marathon. He has run the LA marathon every year since. Omar also operates Race Timers which provides the chip timing for all ARR formal races.
Director of Communications
Bio: Becki is a self described running nerd. She’s been running for about 17 years and has completed numerous races all over the country. Her most challenging race was the Mesquite Canyon 50k Ultramarathon in 2021. She hopes to run in all 50 US states in her lifetime. She loves the running community and is excited to be the newest member of the AZRR Board.
