Bart Davis, the Race Director for the Long Beach International City Bank Marathon, works for International City Racing, an event production and management company based in Long Beach, CA. Events that ICR produces or manages include the Long Beach International City Bank Marathon, the OC Marathon, the Dana Point Turkey Trot, the Pacific Open Water Challenge, and the city-wide Long Beach Sea Festival.
Born and raised in Idaho, Bart lived in Sun Valley, Idaho for 16 years prior to moving to Southern California in August, 2008. It was during that time in Sun Valley that Bart, an avid runner, ultra-marathoner, and triathlete, started to produce local running races and triathlons. Creating local races soon led to the creation of a national collegiate triathlon series in 2007, US Collegiate Triathlon. The desire to work with large-scale races brought Bart to Long Beach in the fall of 2008 to join ICR and take over the Race Director position for the Long Beach International City Bank Marathon, one of the most prestigious marathons in the US.
Bart now lives in Manhattan Beach with his wife, Jennifer and daughter, Adia, and still manages to get out for a run at least 4-5 days a week.
