Winslow Half Marathon and 5k Run/Walk announces 2013 Race Director

The Winslow Half Marathon and 5k Run/Walk steering committee met
recently and elected Winslow resident Dan Dean Race Director for the
2013 event.

Dan Dean grew up in Little Rock and moved to Fayetteville to attend the
University of Arkansas School of Architecture in 1993. He became a
licensed architect in 2004 and a LEED Accredited Professional two years
He and his partner, Laura Kelly, are excited to join the Winslow
community and are building a small homestead farm off Railroad Street
with a focus on fruit production. You may have seen them riding their
bicycles as pace setters for the 2012 Winslow Run. Both are founding
members of the Bicycle Coalition of the Ozarks and have organized the
Highway 71 Classic road ride for the past several years.
No longer a practicing architect, Dan now serves as Project Coordinator
for the Arkansas Energy Corps Americorps Program, an initiative of the
National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) in cooperation with
The Corporation for National and Community Service.
The Energy Corps was created to address unmet community energy needs by
promoting sustainable energy consumption and education, fostering
community sustainability and helping to mitigate the effects of global
climate change.
The race committee under Dan’s leadership hopes to build on this year’s
successful race and Community Expo. Proceeds from the 2012 event raised
funds for various community non-profit organizations including Winslow
Community Meals, Ozark Folkways Heritage Center, the Winslow Emergency
Relief Fund and numerous others.
Plans are being finalized and a date set for the 2013 event. More
