Ben Cohoon

Vision & Finance

It was Ben’s vision that created our first events and set the company in motion. Today, he continues to find new opportunities for Pink Gorilla Events and keeps the finances in check. When he’s not training for his next race, you’ll likely find Ben at home with his wife and daughter.

Linda Brown


If it has to do with our valued sponsors, Linda is on the job… meeting partners old and new and making sure we keep all our promises to them. Plus, on race day you’ll likely see her making the after party run smooth as silk. She’s the mother of two boys and her husband is a big contributor to our websites.

Jared Bakewell


Making sure our events are full and beautifully branded is Jared’s forte. Entrepreneurial necessity has built him into a jack of all trades from graphic design to video production. At night you’ll either find him at home with his wife and daughters, playing in his indie dance rock band, or nerding out over a board game design.

Jason Bakewell


Jason is the glue that holds the team together and the steady hands that steer the ship. His passion for details and planning make sure our events run like clockwork. He and his wife are avid travelers, but they hate to leave home without their two huskies.

Maddie Haden

Customer and Warehouse Services

Know a girl who can handle a tricky customer service issue at the same time she’s packing a truck? That’s Maddie. She answers our customer service inquiries and makes sure the warehouse is super organized. You’ll also find her outfitting runners with fresh kicks and hanging out with her husband when she’s finished dominating at Pink Gorilla for the day.

Jacob Henderson

Event Coordinator

Jacob is our Swiss Army knife, he does a little bit of everything. You might find him working in the warehouse keeping things on track, he might be on his computer helping coordinate the operations of our events, or he’s out and about, taking care of an array of other duties to help make our events great! Jacob’s passion for running brought him to Pink Gorilla Events, and he can’t wait to work hard to make races that leave a lasting impact on every runner! Outside of work, Jacob loves to spend time with his wife, his dog, and his cat!

Chelsea Hansen

Marketing Coordinator

Chelsea is our dynamic Marketing and Social Media Coordinator at Pink Gorilla Events. With a keen eye for detail and a knack for storytelling, she blends a passion for marketing with a love for running. When not immersed in Pink Gorilla Events marketing endeavors, Chelsea can be found at local run clubs, being a proud dance mom, or enjoying a craft beer on a patio with her Husband.
