Doug Bostian — Co-Race Director
I am the owner of Groove City Events which organizes many races in the area including FUNderwear Run, Milan’s Miracle Run, Whoville 5K among others. I have been organizing races for 10 years and has been an active runner for over 33 years.
Bev Chesebro — Co-Race Director
I’m so excited to continue this great event. Running, Triathlon and trails have been a passion in my life for about 19 years. The friendships, relationships, and stories are the priceless benefits I enjoy the most as an endurance athlete.
I am a native Michigander, living in the Grand Rapids area since the 80’s. Some of my favorite hobbies (besides swimming, biking and running) include frequent trips to enjoy northern Michigan.
We will do our best to make this event, one to return to every year, and create a magical northern Michigan experience.

Leslie Bostian — Race Start Specialist
I retired from General Motors in 2007, but since Doug started the business of organizing races, I’ve been busier than ever. The race community in Grand Rapids is so powerful, we have made so many friends along the way and love what we do. Although I am not a runner, I love to walk and ride our new cruiser bikes.
I love organization, which I can put to good use with race planning. I am step mom to two kids, grandma to one, and mom to one dog, and 5 cats.
