Having grown up in the mountains of South Wales, UK, Mark has always had a passion for the outdoors. His family ran an outdoor education center where mountain biking, hiking, rock climbing, kayaking, caving, and other outdoor pursuits were a part of everyday life. After teaching climbing at a camp in Pennsylvania for two summers, Mark moved to the States to be with his summer love, Margo and the rest is history.
Mark is the primary race director for the Cameco Cowboy Tough, a 3.5-day expedition race through Wyoming, the Run & Ride half marathon race series held at multiple Cedar Fair amusement parks, and the Shenandoah Epic Adventure Weekend, one of the largest adventure racing events in the country.
Mark lives in Front Royal, Virginia with his wife, Margo, and two children.
While growing up as the youngest of five in Tennessee, Margo developed a love for adventure under the high-octane tutelage of her older brothers. While working on her Journalism & Mass Communication degree from UNC (Go Heels!), she worked as a summer camp counselor in the Poconos, where she first met her ropes course and climbing wall colleague and future husband up in a tree. After getting married, earning a masters in English from George Mason University, having two awesome kids, and working as a full-time and freelance editor, she took on her next adventure--becoming the Communications Director for the family business. Margo thinks she may have found her calling--she loves seeing familiar faces at Rev3 Adventure events, meeting the folks who've emailed with questions, and getting to know first-time participants. When Margo is not working at a race or on a field watching her kids play sports, she continues to nurture a love for the mountains and outdoor activities, from hiking to paddling to rock climbing, right outside their back door in Front Royal, Virginia.
