Lorraine Hardaway

OUC Orlando Half Marathon Ambassador

Lorraine was inspired to start running when her two sons ran cross country for Winter Park High. She started at age 43 with her first 5k ever. At 49 she ran the Chicago marathon and trained with Marathonfest. Since then she has been leading a pace group in the training program and has run 27 marathons, over 100 half marathons and countless 5 and 10K’s. Some of her best friends have been made while running long miles on the roads of Winter Park. As a full time event planner for Cru, she has led their corporate 5k team which started at 12 runners and grew to over 500 one year! Needless to say, running has been a huge part of her adult life and since her husband has followed the same path with her it has been great for their whole family!
