Drawn by the summer trail running series, Chad joined ERR in 2015 and quickly grew to love the people and the activities. He and his wife Susan both graduated from Liberty High School and Loyola College in Baltimore. They have lived in Carroll County for over 35 years. Their two children, Megan and Tristan, are in high school at Liberty where Tristan competes in Cross Country and Track. Tristan participated in Youth Arrows Cross Country and Track in 2015 and 2016, and returns to Arrows as a high school student volunteer. Chad helped with Arrows as a parent coach and is now an Assistant Coach for Arrows Cross Country and Track. A long time mountain biker, Chad’s love of the wooded trails led him to start trail running in 2012. He has since completed several 50K ultramarathons and ran his first 50 miler in November 2016 (with more to come). Chad works full time as COO and part-owner of Bunting Door & Hardware in Elkridge, and uses his business experience and love of running to help Jane lead ERR.
Community Outreach Director
Rick, aka "DJ Rick", joined ERR in 2013 after attending an annual morning Pancake Run. Rick found kindred spirits at his first official ERR event. Up until this time, running had meant playing soccer. As the days of contact sports have passed, ERR is fulfilling the physical and social benefits that he had enjoyed during his competitive soccer days. Rick has lived in Carroll County almost his entire life, graduating from Westminster High School and Western Maryland College where he met Loel. Rick and Loel eventually moved to Sykesville in 1998. They raised three children, all active in sports and graduates of Century High School. Rick loves trail running and helped to map out many of the trails that are used frequently by ERR members. Rick and Loel have also coached the successful Couch to 5k program that was started by ERR. Always up for a good time, Rick participates in Pub Runs, Backyard running series and many other fun events that ERR sponsors. Rick most appreciates this social aspect, as it truly makes ERR feel like a family. Rick is self-employed and the owner of MD Pharmaceutical Supply. Make sure to stop and say hi to “DJ Rick” at an upcoming ERR race event.

Youth Program Coordinator
Since 1997, Mindy and her husband Eric have lived in Carroll County, where Mindy works at the Early Years Learning Center Preschool. Previously, Mindy studied French, Spanish, and Russian, graduated from Indiana University with a French degree, and worked in languages with the federal government for 10 years. Although she ran track and cross country in high school, Mindy didn’t truly develop a love for running until years later when she started signing up for 5Ks, joining relay teams and training for a half-marathon. She connected with other ERR members through facebook and at local gatherings and discovered what many already know – the Rogue Runners are a fabulous and encouraging group of people! Two of Mindy’s four children have participated in the ERR Youth Arrows Clubs since 2013, where Mindy volunteered and eventually took on an administration role for both the cross country and track and field seasons. How rewarding to see these programs thrive over the last several years!
