Mark Annett

Open Board 

Promotions Committee Chair

My friends nicknamed me ‘Markathon’, because I’m passionate about running and I appreciate the stamina necessary to train and complete a Marathon. Two years ago, I joined Run Minnesota’s Spring Marathon Class to push myself to accomplish my goal of finishing a marathon under sub four hours (Grandma’s 2018). Along the way, I’ve benefited in so many ways. I have volunteered for many races and running events where I feel pride in giving back to my community and meeting people. I consider myself to be a likable personality to all people while being open to building my experience, relationships and trust with others.

In my career, I am leader of cross-functional international teams and a highly experienced Project Manager with proven success in managing complex projects. I have demonstrated achievements in planning, budgeting, directing and implementing projects on time. This working experience, I believe, can be of value while serving a position on the Run Minnesota board.
