Lia Davidson

Editor (because lord knows, Eric needs one!)

Lia is a professional copywriter/editor (when she’s not running, reading or painting). She stays busy with her two teenagers and has been very active with the Meg’s Miles group since it started.


Christine Navarro McKannan

Official Merchandise & Training Run Coordinator

We met Christine while creating some ad spots for LM Communications, a Lexington radio conglomerate. Recently married and also mom to "Chewy" (the dog), Christine is an immense help on our early Saturday morning training runs and when all your online store orders come in!


Jill Huffman

Athletes' Services

Jill has been a distance runner for six years and strangely loves the Marathon distance, best. When not running and answering your emails, she teaches water fitness classes, is a personal trainer, and Chief Exercise Officer of HydroRunning with Jill, in Cincinnati. Jill is also the Buddy Relations Co-Coordinator for the international running group, IRUN4. With two crazy kids and an even crazier dog, she is never idle. 

Melynda Jamison

Melynda Jamison & Mare Bivins

Volunteer Coordinators

Melynda and Mare have been serving Central Kentucky in a number of selfless roles for many years, and when they aren't helping with RunTheBluegrass they lead CASA of Lexington's charge to help Bluegrass area children.


Cherlynn Stevenson

Hospitality Coordinator

Cher has been working "behind-the-scenes" at RTB for the past 5 years now in many different capacities, including volunteer, wine pouring girl at the pre-race dinner, and everything in between. Personally, we know her as the Paula Deen of Kentucky - she knows how to plan a party!
