We LOVE Our Runners

Nobody loves their runners more than us!
Long distance runners are truly amazing. We design our event just for YOU.

We LOVE our runners

The Sand Hollow Marathon is put on by Chris Mathisen, owner of Red Dog Events. Along with Chris he is heavily supported by his two sons Billy and Spencer. When you are out on a Red Dog Event you can spot these three guys interacting with each other and the runners at the event.

If you talk to Chris he will describe to you a love story of sorts. He just absolutely LOVES long distances runners. Or as Chris would say ‘those crazy long distance runners’. Chris loves to see people cross the finish line. Happy and with big smiles on their faces. “Each year it just gets better and better. I learn from each event. What runners want and what we need to provide them. I ask questions, listen and adapt the event to make it better. I absolutely love to see people cross the finish line. From the super fast runners crossing first to those that finish hours later. What can I say except the kindness and inspiration is so uplifting. Thank you for running Sand Hollow”.
