Luca Kelley Nielsen

President

Hello! My name is Luca and I am excited to be you President this year. I am a sophomore from Brookline, Massachusetts and running has been a part of my life since my freshman year of high school. Even before I decided on IU as the school I was going to attend, I reached out to our club's leadership and after hearing what the club had to offer, I decided on IU almost immediately. Like many others in our club's community, athletic teams were a major part of my high school experience and I only wanted to expand on the passions I developed from them. Run Club has provided me with lifelong friends, a passionate training group and people who care about each other's success and growth. Whether you are brand new to running or ran before you walked, I promise that this is the place for you. Feel free to reach out to me at lkelleyn@iu.edu with any questions. I hope to see you soon!

Hunter Mullis

Men's Social Chair

Hi! My name is Hunter and I am the 2024 Men's Social Chair! I'm a freshman from Zionsville, Indiana studying Environmental Geoscience with a minor in Spanish. I played lacrosse growing up but found my love for running my senior year of high-school when I lost a bet and ended up running a marathon. This past cross country season was my first and I loved every bit of it! As a part of the social chair, I want to make sure everyone is involved regardless the event. Can't make every practice or competition? No problem! Although I'd encourage you to make as many practices and meets as possible, there's more ways than running to stay active in this club and meet tons of awesome people. I look forward to providing current and future members memories to last a lifetime as part of the Run Club. If you ever have any questions regarding my position or the club please contact me at hunmull@iu.edu
