A Holiday Message From RUSA Board President Iris Simpson Bush


Dear Running USA Members,


On behalf of the board of directors and staff of Running USA, my warmest wishes for a happy holiday season for you and your staffs and families. It is hard to believe another year has gone by. It has been an eventful and productive 2018, with much accomplished in our industry and by this organization.


I have served on the Running USA board for nearly six years now and was honored to be elected president in July. Your CEO, Rich Harshbarger, and his small but effective team work incredibly hard to serve this organization and create value for you, its members. They have yet another outstanding industry conference coming up in February in Puerto Rico and we hope to see everyone there.


Research, education, communications and membership benefits are all very important to this organization and it's been wonderful to see excellent progress in each of those areas this year. In my time on the board, I've never felt better about the health of the organization and its positive momentum. Great things are coming for 2019, so stay tuned!


I invite you to reach out and communicate with me to share your thoughts and feedback about Running USA and how we can better serve you in the year ahead. I can be reached by email at iris@flyingpigmarathon.com. I look forward to hearing from you.


Thank you, and best wishes for a happy and productive 2019,
