Jacksonville Running Company Staff

Owen Shott

I started JRC because I wanted to help people, and I had a passion to want to do things different and better. My goal is to take running in Jacksonville to a whole nother level!

Jason McClung

General Manager
I’m originally from Orlando, FL and my favorite race is the Marine Corp Half Marathon here in Jacksonville. My personal goal is to go under 4:45 for the half ironman!

Liz Brabston

Fit Technician
One of my favorite races is the Tallahassee Ultra Distance Classic because it pushed me way beyond my comfort zone. It was my first race out of this city, and for an Ultra distance.

KC McKean

Fit Technician
My job at JRC is to share my love of fitness with others; any way I can help someone get on their feet! My favorite race is the Susan G. Komen; I love the energy.

Stephanie Aiken

Operations Manager
My favorite race would be a tie between the Philadelphia and San Francisco marathons. The funky vibe of San Fran makes it fun, and the Philly one, well, it’s my hometown! Run hard, pee clear!

Jackie Markese

Fit Technician
The mantra I live by is to enjoy life, this is no dress rehearsal! My goal is to keep running into my 70’s, 80’s & 90’s and to win my age group!

Bobby Green

My job is to help people. I’m a Jacksonville native, born and raised, and my favorite race is the Gee Haw Whimmy Diddle 5K. My Mantra? Drink beer & Run like an animal!

Jesse Patterson

Inventory Manager
My favorite race is the Gate River Run because I like the 15k distance, running the bridges, and the post-race beer. At JRC, it’s nice to see people get excited as their hard work pays off.

Chris McCaffrey

Gym Outreach
I’m a Jacksonville native who was born to run! This rebirth came after a motorcycle crash in 2010, and my coming in 4th place overall that year in a Turkey Trot 5k. I haven’t stopped since.

Allison Gubitz

Social Media Coordinator
My favorite races are the ones at Evergreen Cemetery. It’s just really pretty and relaxing out there, and they are always a fun race. My goal is to one day run a marathon.

I have been a loyal customer and running participant with JRC since they first opened! I wanted to join the staff to help encourage and empower runners to strive for their goals!

One of my favorite races I’m loyal to is the local 26.2 With Donna. It was my first marathon and became my 20th marathon on the 5th Anniversary of the run!

One of my favorite races is the Chicago Marathon because of the spectator vibes. My goal is to use the Chicago Marathon to qualify for Boston.
