Rogelio Quintanar began his torrid love affair with running after he signed up for the high school cross country team. Over the course of 30 plus years he has run in over 40 states and a handful of foreign countries. He has run races ranging in a variety of distances from one kilometer fun runs up to ultramarathons. Rogelio also finished a handful of off road triathlons but soon realized that he couldn’t run during the swim portion of the event and decided to stick to running.
Most recently he has been involved in promoting running in the Golden Isles of Georgia. He has been the race director (and co-director) for local races, provided consultation to local organizations interested in creating their own running events, sat on the organizing committees, and volunteered many hours on the race course. Rogelio also measures courses for USATF certification. He lives and trains on the St. Simons Islands, GA.
