Tim Murphy co-founded BibRave in late 2013, originally creating a place for runners to gather online and discuss the best races to run, the best gear to try, and the best nutrition to use. From there grew a large community of running bloggers, which BibRave uses to help races and brands reach more runners. The company hosts a weekly (and lively!) Twitter chat called #BibChat, and they also host The BibRave Podcast, which boasts a 5-star rating on iTunes.
Mr. Murphy has also started and grown companies in the healthcare and young professional development space, beginning his career at a Washington, D.C. consulting firm. He received a Master’s degree from the University of Denver and a bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Tim has run 15 marathons and 6 ultra marathons, and is currently training for… well, he’s still figuring that out. Talk to him about podcasts, tech, history, food, Star Wars, the TV show LOST, trail running, or beer.
