‘Mr. Marathon’ Tracy Sundlun owed $160K by firm he co-founded

Tracy also helps run 50K race walks near his Santee home.

M60 marathon business legend Tracy Sundlun was laid off by San Diego-based Competitor Group Inc. last July — days before leaving for Rio and his gig as U.S. men’s track team manager. I wrote about his firing. Now he shares a scarier story — that his old employer, CGI, which he built into an international powerhouse, has denied him severance pay and won’t reimburse all his business expenses. They won’t even return all his personal office items. Why? Tracy says CGI blames my November 2016 Times of San Diego story as containing “disparaging” remarks in violation of his separation agreement. Tracy tells me that ain’t so. (So I’m not feeling guilty.) But Tracy is taking on his old company by sharing a bunch of documents on his case. See my latest story. So that explains why I’ve been quiet past couple days. (I have a lot of info on records set and payments made at Sierra Gold meet. Stay tuned.)
