John Mosey

LEVEL I USAT CERTIFIED RACE DIRECTOR

In 2011 John signed up for the Riverbank Run to raise money honoring a friend from high school. At the time he was 100 pounds overweight and unable to run for 30 seconds. Fast forward a year and he was down 70 pounds, had successfully completed the Riverbank Run, and raised a few dollars for a worthwhile charity. Like many runners, he transitioned to multisport after a running injury and has since completed all distances, from a sprint up to the full.

He and his wife Dawn live in Rockford with their two kids and two dogs.
