Our race directors are not just guys off the street, but runners just like you who have experience and know what you need before, during, and after your race. They are Runners just like you, who enjoy running and all the things that come along with the sport. They love not only challenging themselves, but also enjoy helping and encouraging others on their journey to accomplish their personal goals.

Our goal at Race Brimstone is to create top-quality races with a unique flair. Every runner from the experienced veteran to the first-time newbie will feel valued, supported, and inspired: before, during, and after the race.

Eric Whittington
Race Director

Jeremey began running in 2009 on a bet from his wife (he lost). This initial foray into the sport only motivated him to work harder and run more. He quickly got hooked on running and went from not running at all, to running his first marathon within a year. From there he has continued to enjoy the sport, pushing to run more often and farther. He has run everything from 5Ks to 100-mile Ultras, but his favorite distance is a good 50-miler! Jeremey also coaches cross country and track for his local High School since 2015.

Jeremey and his family live in Canal Fulton. He and his wife have three biological children and provide foster care for three additional children. (So he's a busy father!)

Employed as a real estate agent with Hayes Realty, Jeremy actively encourages individuals with questions to contact him with any real estate needs.

Eric Whittington is not new to the "Ultra Arena". Not only is he co-race director for the Eagle Up Ultra, he has completed fourteen 100-mile trail races... to include all five 100-milers in the 2017 Midwest Superslam of Ultrarunning. In addition to ultra running he has also completed three full Ironman events with a fourth on the way. This guy knows how to stock an aid station.

Eric spends much of his time working with veterans by introducing them to ultra running, cycling and swimming as part of their self help and therapy.

He resides in Canal Fulton, Ohio where he also serves as a city councilman.
