HEY there!  I'M RACHEL- your race director and adventure architect, designing unique races that ignite excitement and inspire challenge!


Nice to meet you! I'm Rachel, the passionate creator and spirited race director behind Forward Motion Events. From the high-energy Pumpkinman Triathlon and Running Festival to the community-favorite Rick's Run 5K and the inspiring Luna Run, I've dedicated my career to crafting memorable and exhilarating race experiences.

But that's not all! I'm deeply rooted in our South Berwick community, actively serving on local non-profit boards, and constantly looking for ways to uplift our neighborhood. I’m also the proud mom of three amazing kids and happily married to my high school sweetheart—life is an exciting adventure, and I cherish every moment!

I've also had the incredible opportunity to collaborate with All Day Running Co, founded by Jesse Itzler. I have helped produce standout events like "Hell in the Hill" Maine Edition (the world's hilliest half marathon!) and their RUNNINGMAN event. My role in these collaborations has further fueled my passion for creating challenging and transformative race experiences.

Plus, I've tackled the thrilling Race Across America, serving as crew and co-crew chief for three different teams, pushing boundaries and setting new standards.

I'm driven by a relentless passion for adventure and personal growth. I believe wholeheartedly in the power of a finish line—not just as an end point, but as a gateway to discovering your true potential and strength.

So, are you ready to join us for an unforgettable season? Gear up for a run filled with fun, challenge, and personal triumphs. Remember, you are stronger than you think, more capable than you realize, and just one decision away from transforming your life. Let's sprint, laugh, and grow together at our next event. I can't wait to cheer you on as you cross that finish line!  LET'S GOOOOO!
