Ohio State Representative - Jim Latham

Jim Latham has been chasing his wife around ever since he met her, ensuring she stayed hydrated and vertical on her long runs. Of course, the longer she ran, the longer he had to follow her with those water bottles! Not only does he enjoy half marathons and various trail races, but this led to volunteering at numerous races where he ensured other runners stayed hydrated and vertical – including having been a sector lead with the USAF Marathon, and also the Boston Marathon where he volunteered the last few years with the Security Team at the finish line. He is the President of, and a race director for, the almost 1700 member all volunteer Ohio River Road Runners Club in Dayton, where he has made it a priority to upgrade the Club’s EMS support and create a comprehensive plan providing full EMS support for 40+ road and trail races a year. He is also a certified Wilderness First Responder with experience in both front and back country situations. When not otherwise engaged with the running community, he works as an NDVMA Americorp Volunteer Naturalist for Five Rivers MetroParks at the Germantown MetroPark Nature Center doing outreach and advocacy programs, hikes, and facilitation for people of all ages to get outside.
