Triple Crown Committee

Triple Crown BioScott Brown

This is my third year serving on the committee for the Triple Crown series. As a runner and racer for over 44 years, I am looking forward to contributing to the continued success.  I have won both the Bridge Run and Fit Fest 5k, formerly course record holder of the Bridge Run course. In 1999, I began PR Racing, a local running team which I still coach and direct today. I have also directed and assisted in management of a number of road races. In 2008, I was inducted into the Maine Running Hall of Fame.

I joined the Triple Crown committee in 2014.   My first road race was the 2008 YMCA Fit Fest. I have been hooked on running ever since!  I am currently a stay at home mom to two beautiful little girls.  I love being part of the Triple Crown committee because it benefits three wonderful organizations.  My current role on the committee is sponsorships and race amenities.

In 2005 my brother, Sam, started the Emily Fletcher 5k as a memorial race for our sister and as a way to raise money for important local causes in her name. I have served as race director for Emily’s Run for the last four years and am looking forward to my fifth year on the Triple Crown Committee. I currently manage Lamey Wellehan’s Running Department and previous to that was a sales representative for Mizuno’s Running Division in NorCal. Hope to see you out at the races!

As a competitive runner and a fan of running for over 50 years, I am pleased to have joined the Triple Crown committee as a way to give back to the sport and also contribute to promoting health and fitness in the community. I retired from Proctor and Gamble in 2005 and enjoy outdoor activities, motorcycles and the occasional beer. The three races provide a great venue for runners of all abilities, whether seasoned veterans or those attempting their first race and I derive great pleasure from being a part of the whole experience.

This is my third year on the Triple Crown Committee, and I look forward to assisting on the Fundraising and Sponsorship Committee again.  I retired from the retail industry in 2011 as Special Projects Manager and my experience and contacts will assist the committee to reach our goals.  I am a volunteer at the Auburn Public Library, Museum L/A and Maine Huts & Trails.  I joined the local “Tuesday Night Running Club” over 10 years ago and I have run 5k’s, 10k’s and my first ½ marathon in 2013. The Triple Crown fundraiser supports area children and brings the community together.


Alan Groudle

I’m the newbie to the committee and joined the team to help with marketing and graphics for the Triple Crown. Having run the Triple Crown the past few years and getting so much out of them, I was looking for a way to give back. This year being the 10 year anniversary, I was able to put my skills to work with creating a logo along with other print materials. In my free time I like to paint, do graphic design and listen to music. Oh, and I like to run. I am a part of the PR Racing team that fellow committee member Scott Brown runs.

Amy and David Hediger are in their third year on the committee.  Active runners and volunteers of local races, Amy and David both first ran the Bridge Run in 1999 and have taken part ever since.  Amy is the interim assistant superintendent in RSU 16, and David works in Planning and Code Enforcement for the City of Lewiston.  Both enjoy the sense of community and comradery at the Triple Crown races and look forward to assisting with the continuation of a great series of races.


Marcie Hird

I became a part of the Triple Crown committee three years ago as my professional career changed from the banking business to the Fitness Director at the Auburn Lewiston YMCA. I have, however, been involved with the Triple Crown many years as a participant and volunteer, and I am very passionate about the legacy it carries on from year to year and how it brings our community together.

Looking to bring more running races to Lewiston/Auburn, I started the L-A Bridge Run in 1998.  I have watched our running community grow and really enjoy being part of an event that brings together people of all abilities and encourages healthy living.  In 2007 the Triple Crown was formed as a way to share the work of organizing a series of running races.  I am currently the Co-Chair of the Triple Crown Committee, and I get to work with a great group of dedicated committee members.  I retired from the Auburn Fire Department in 2014 and am now working at Bates College as a groundskeeper.  I enjoy running, hiking and anything that keeps me in motion.  There’s nothing like the magic on race day when runners come together!

I’m a lifelong runner and started participating in races in 2010. I began running the Triple Crown in 2013, and they remain my favorite races of the season. I started volunteering in 2015 with the Kid’s Run, this is my second year on the committee. I am a mother of four and left my job as an IT Manager when our family opened our retail music business in Auburn in 2013. Being a small business owner, the need to reach out and support the local community became very important to me. The Triple Crown serves three amazing causes, and I enjoy contributing to the success of the series!

I have been on the Triple Crown Committee since the beginning.  I am the Director of Operations at the Auburn-Lewiston YMCA, one of the three organizations that the Triple Crown supports.  My role on the committee is registration and finance.  I have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of this event and watched it grow into such an amazing community event.

My name is Mona Murphy, and I work at the Central Maine Medical Center Laboratory. I got hooked on running when my manager invited me to join her at the Tuesday night running group about 10 years ago, and I have loved it from day one.   The Triple Crown races have always been such fun. I’ve met so many wonderful people who are runners.  I’m looking forward to giving back to a sport I’ve enjoyed for many years.

This will be my fourth year volunteering on the Triple Crown Committee. I am thrilled to be able to give back to the Triple Crown series because these races were among my first when I began running in 2007. I teach kindergarten in Auburn and love running road races from 5k’s to marathons.

I am in my fifth year on the committee and manage the content on the series website. Several years ago, the Triple Crown events got me back into running, and I have enjoyed the impact the races have had on my family, friends and our community. I am the principal at Whittier Middle School in Poland, where we share the Triple Crown’s commitment to healthy children and active families. I am also a proud dad of a family full of runners.

I am a Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE). I am also the owner of Integrated Optimal Health and Choice Center for Diabetes and Weight Loss with locations in Auburn and Conway, NH.  I have been an avid runner for over 30 years. I was one of the creators and former road race director of the Pemi Youth 5k and Half Marathon in NH. This race benefits a youth center that provides a safe haven for children after school.  This is my third year on the Triple Crown Committee, and I am looking forward to being involved with this 5k series.
