Meet Your Perfect 10 Miler Bow Tie Guys

While you’re psyching yourself up at the Perfect  10 starting line, you may notice a bow tie or two out of the corner of your eye. This quirky regalia is donned by our handsome Bow Tie Guys, who will send you off at the beginning of your race and cheer you on as you return to finish. These gentlemen want to help make sure your race day feels like one helluva celebration, so make sure you reciprocate a high five or two when you see them. We had the opportunity to ask these guys some questions about themselves. Get to know the men behind the bow ties by reading some of their answers below.
