Big Hurt Legends

Gay Hunter

Gay Hunter

The first Legend Award went to Gay Hunter, who is an amazing local athlete, participating in countless marathons, Ironman events, and more, all over the country. Gay has raced in EVERY Big Hurt: 1997-2004, 2015-present. She also volunteers for ALL of our races in some way or another.

We love Gay so much, and we are so glad we could honor her for all that she contributes to us and her local community. She is our great friend as well, and feel lucky to have her at our sides, always with a smile and positive can-do attitude.


The man. The myth. The legend.
