Customer Support Rep CRUSHES IT at Quarry Run

Vulcan Norcross is the ‘largest’ quarry in the series. This run’s motto is ‘You gotta DIG DEEP from 600 feet!’ Check out this video from 2016. Supporting the community that surrounds each quarry is essential to the overall mission of the Crusher Run Series. In Atlanta, they partner with the Gwinnett County Public Schools Foundation Fund as well as support the Boys and Girls Clubs of Gwinnett County. 

Jim Ulrich (Regional Sales Director, USA) and Kate Mills (Customer Support Representative) represented Excel at the event. They both served as greeters from a small booth at the end of the course where they distributed Excel-branded drawstring backpacks to the runners. Kate, however, was up to the challenge and chose to participate in the event as a runner, also! 

In this 3.7 mile endurance challenge, she descended 600′ from the starting line to the bottom of the quarry…only before turning around and climbing her way back out! It was a grueling challenge, but according to Kate, ‘[she] would do it again in a heartbeat!’ She states, “The Quarry Run was unlike anything I’d participated in before. It was a unique experience where trail running meets 5K, meets heavy equipment, meets beautiful scenery. I enjoyed building relationships with our customers and viewing one of the largest quarry operations in the country from a different perspective. 

Next year, Vulcan intends to stage the same event at McCook Quarry, near Chicago and Excel hopes to assemble a group together to run at the event.
