Over the past 15 years, Dawkins has transformed running and cycling events through his company Project Sport, a venture he founded as a 25-year-old graduate student and built into an industry-leading event production, management, and promotion company. In 2012, Project Sport sold a portfolio event to Competitor Group, which became Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon San Francisco. Project Sport was ultimately acquired by OmniForce, LLC in February of 2014.
In recognition of his achievements, Ryan received Acquisition International’s Business Excellence Award for “Best CEO in the Events Sector” in 2015 for his contributions to the industry’s evolution.
Dawkins is also a competitive athlete, completing several IRONMAN events and finishing second as part of a 4-man team in the Race Across America from San Diego to Atlantic City. He is an avid triathlete and currently competes as part of the Olympic Club Triathlon Team in San Francisco.
Dawkins and his wife live in Oakland, California with their two children.
