Racing on the Track


I am Joshua Perks.  I live in Windham, NH with my wife Lisa, daughters Hazel and Rosaleen and our 3 cats Penny, Mr. Bear and Tygee.  I started road racing at the age of 9 and ran for Arlington HS track and cross country in the late 80’s early 90’s.  I had a bit of a competitive layoff (11 years of no running) before running for Purchase College 2002-2004 starting when I was 28 years old.  In 2009 Mike Insler and I started Roadkill Racing mostly because we wanted a fun singlet to race in. Since then team has since grown into a competitive force in Western NY’s racing scene. After moving to New Hampshire in 2016 I began racing for the Central Mass Striders and have turned over management of the Roadkill Racing team to the dedicated members who live in the Rochester area.

I remain desperately passionate about running as a competitive sport, and as always race for 

“Beer & Glory.”
