Before reaching the start line on race day, teams of people never cease to work behind the scenes to deliver you the Rock ‘n’ Roll experience. So who are those people writing emails, designing your medals, laying out cones, and ordering 10,000 bananas?
Meet: Bethany Dominick
Role: Event Manager
Bethany is originally from Boston but moved to San Diego after living and working in Costa Rica for a year. She had her first exposure to endurance sports at The Active Network where she became involved in long distance running. Producing events in the running industry became a passion of hers so when the opportunity to manage them at Competitor presented itself, she seized it! She has now been with the company just over 4 years.
Favorite Part of her job:
“Definitely the people I work with – I’ve never seen a harder working group of individuals that know how to work together to put on great events and then still want to hang out together afterwards to celebrate…. My favorite part of race day is cheering on the last runners and walkers crossing over the finish line and seeing how proud they are to have accomplished such a feat that maybe at one time they never thought possible. I still get teary eyed.”
In her spare time…
Bethany loves being in the water by surfing at sunrise or sunset. Getting in a good workout is also important to her either through a long run, spin class, or some hot yoga.
“I am typically a happy and positive person but my #1 pet peeve is biting into a bad apple, the grainy mealy kind. It makes me mad, apples are expensive these days!”
