Robyn's interest in running, health and fitness started with her dad...an avid runner through her childhood and college years. She enjoyed playing sports all through school and once in college, decided to major in Exercise Science. In 1991, she received her B.S. in Exercise Science. She worked two years in her field and two more years in graduate school.
In 1997, Robyn moved from southeastern Michigan to Nags Head, North Carolina, where she raised her kids and enjoyed beach life. She got back into the health and fitness field when she started working for Outer Banks Sporting Events as their Event Coordinator/Marketing Director from 2006-2011. Robyn and her kids relocated to the Shenandoah Valley in the fall of 2011 where they traded in beach walks for mountain hikes and the search for the best watering hole!
Dwayne took up running in 2007 with the notion of running a marathon before he turned 40. He quickly fell in love with the sport and went on to complete several marathons and eventually found his true passion – trail running. He serves as Director of Parks and Recreation in Waynesboro and was the brainchild behind the very successful Run the Valley running series, which includes the Park to Park Half Marathon and the ever popular Mad Anthony Mud Run.
In 2010 Dwayne and Robyn met at the Flying Pirate Half Marathon. They were married a few years later and the rest is history! Together, they have over 20+ years' experience in running event management. Their goal is to make every race a fun event for friends, couples, groups and families. In addition, they have groomed their four children to be our future race directors!
