It takes more than athletes to make a race and it was very important to the Mountain Goat Board of Directors that organizers, civic leaders and volunteers were also recognized.  William Nurk is one of those important individuals that helps make Mountain Goat what it is.

Bill Nurk serves in the Syracuse Police Department for 37 years, many of which were spent in coordinating safety and traffic control for special events like the Mountain Goat Run.  Holding a 10 mile run through the city of Syracuse that crosses over 100 city intersections is no easy task.  But Bill made it look that way.

He never got rattled, showed more patience than humanly possible and had the ability to work with an all volunteer based committee.  Bill was an essential part of the Mountain Goat team.
