RACE DIRECTOR BRUCE DUNN:
Dunn's experiences in fundraising, customer service, small business
management/ownership and race promotion are the foundation to not

running and outdoor events.

of the University of Arkansas with a degree in finance and banking.
He is the former director of development for the College of Education

He has held leadership positions in several civic and professional
organizations in Northwest Arkansas including president of the Northside
Rotary Club, chairperson of the Town Center Election Committee,
and president of the Downtown Fayetteville Business Association.
He has served as a board member of Children's House, Habitat for
Humanity and the Downtown/Dickson Enhancement Project.
When not in
a meeting or on the phone, he is riding his bike. He is a USA Triathlon

to USA Cycling and president of the Arkansas
Bicycle Coalition. He serves as president of a local cycling
Wheelmen / Tyson Racing, and competes as a Category 2 &
