Future Look of Running Events – Andrea Dowdy & Creigh Kelley – Colfax Marathon

Hello Runners,

Welcome to fall. Only three months until 2021, finally. And please, no matter what your political affiliation, GET OUT AND VOTE! Please!!!!!!

Things are changing here at Feel Good Running. The new Intro & Outro are still in production. So I just came up with a temporary band-aid for this episode. The former Intro & Outro have been laid to rest.

I’m pleased to announce a milestone for the Feel Good Running podcast! We have surpassed 10,000 downloads! Many thanks to all you listeners. Thank you for sticking with me and sharing my podcast with your running friends and on your social media platforms. I hope you will continue to do so.

So, this is a very important episode for many reasons. As all of us runners know, the pandemic has changed the face of the running world. Runners, race directors, vendors, charities, sponsors, running event coordinators, volunteers and those who have any involvement with a local running race will get so much out of this episode.

Andrea Dowdy is the CEO and Executive Director and Creigh Kelley is the Race Director of the Denver Colfax Marathon. Together they head up this top premier running event, 7 races in two days that attract over 20,000 runners.

These two amazing, skilled professional individuals join me to talk about the future of running events in a pandemic world. They recently put together “Recommended Guidelines for Small to Large Running Events” that is being embraced world wide.

Be safe runners. Wear your mask in public. Please be kind and courteous to others. Remember to “just show up and always, ALWAYS, feel good about YOUR running!”

Keep running!

~ Jim
