Becky Hall_Meet the Team

RACE DIRECTOR—BECKY HALL comes to the Lexus LaceUp Running Series with a plethora of race experience including Ragnar Relay, the Amgen Tour of California, the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah, and a number of other events. Becky loves directing races because they bring communities together.

“A running race offers a challenge to every athlete, regardless of his or her age or ability,” said Becky. “I’m excited to offer a variety of distances, so there is something for everyone.”

Becky’s personal favorite race distances are 10ks and 5ks. She also enjoys cycling, swimming and traveling.

Becky currently resides in Venice Beach, California, but will never shake her native Wisconsin roots and “cheesy” puns.
