Holly Visser has been announced as the new Co-Race Director. Holly has been on the race committee since the first year and is excited to bring her passion for the event to her new role alongside Kristen Aidif.
” I’m a mom. I’m a Runner. I’m a yoga instructor. I’m originally from Eastern Michigan but Lake Michigan sunsets have captured my heart. I’m an adventurer and love to travel. I’m a hard worker-fiercely driven, but bringing a sense of balance to everything I do, can also stop and smell the roses. I am humbled to serve as Gazelle Girls race co-director having played a role in the event all four years. I value community and look forward to our 2017 event! ” -Holly Visser
