COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Quad Cities Marathon founder Joe Moreno recently was voted to the board of directors for Running USA.
Also the race director for East Moline's Fourth of July Firecracker Run, Moreno was among three newcomers picked for seven available seats in charge of the sport's national non-profit organization.
Not including a pair of first-timers appointed by USA Track & Field, the 17-member board includes running industry leaders from across the country picked by Running USA's membership.
Moreno's term is for two years, starting with this weekend's 10th Industry Conference in Georgia, where the newly elected board convenes for the first time.
