Race Directors

John Mosey

LEVEL I USAT CERTIFIED RACE DIRECTOR
LEVEL I USAT CERTIFIED COACH

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 triathletes he transitioned to multisport as an injured runner and has since completed all distances, from a sprint up to the full. His favorite discipline is cycling, and he can often be found trying to talk his friends into doing questionable things with him, such as signing up for Michigan Coast 2 Coast, a 210-mile one day gravel race across the State. He is a USAT Level 1 Coach, and will be completing his Level 1 Race Director certification in 2020. He and his wife Dawn live in Rockford with their two kids and two dogs.
