As a highlight of the Road Race Management Race Directors' Meeting, Bill Roe was named the MarathonFoto/Road Race Management Lifetime Achievement Award winner for 2017.

The award is made for contributions to the sport of long distance road running over the course of a lifetime. Scores of nominations were received that read like a Who's Who of running. The 10-member committee had the difficult task of reviewing the nominees.

A committee made up of race directors, athletes, media, corporate executives and club officials also  named Flying Pig Marathon Director Iris Simpson Bush the MarathonFoto/Road Race Management Race Director of the Year.

Both individuals were honored at a reception at the Road Race Management Race Directors’ Meeting in St. Petersburg, FL on November 9.
