Gibson, Dave “Hoot”
I serve the ORRRC as race director for the Sugar Maple 5k, coordinator for the race calendar cards, lead timer for club races, and frequent volunteer. I would like to continue serving on the board and working to make a great running club even better.
I have been a member of the ORRRC since the mid-90’s and a Trustee since 2004. I am on the committees for the Marathon, Ghost n Goblin and Turkey Trot. As a senior member of the board, I bring much historical knowledge, but also wish to see the club keep growing. It would be an honor to continue as a trustee.
I am a runner and race volunteer. I am a girl scout leader, sorority member and chapter leader of She Runs This Town. I would love to see the club grow, move towards less waste events, and continue to offer fun events for a variety of running abilities.
I am asking for your support in this year’s Ohio River Road Runners Club Trustee election. I have been a member of the club since 2007. Keep our club strong. Vote Johnston!
I would like to help the ORRRC sustain its presence and future within the Greater Miami Valley running community. I believe in the club, its ends, and its role in our community. If elected, I will bring professionalism, humor, vision, open mind, team-player, and the ability to get the job done!
