Hawaii State Representative - Ron Alford

Ron has been running for 35 years.  After a 40+ year career with the Department of Veterans affairs, he retired and moved to Hawaii with his wife, Betty Gail.  He lived in many places during his work career and running has always been there for him. He was an active member of the Peninsula Track Club in Newport News, Virginia, both as runner and volunteer. He next moved to West Virginia where he re-activated the Huntington Track Club and partnered with the local parks department to develop the club and promote local running events.

In 2002 Ron became an RRCA Certified Coach and introduced a very successful beginners running program in Huntington which has some of the highest obesity, smoking, and heart disease rates in the country.  After a job-related move to Atlanta, Ron joined the Atlanta Track Club and served as a volunteer coach for club members. Ron now serves as a staff volunteer with the Honolulu Marathon Clinic which prepares participants to run the Honolulu Marathon in December.
