Coaching Staff

"…you guys need to stop a minute to recognize just how much you do for us—and I'm not talking about just the running. I literally had you all in my head at different points in the race, and each time, felt that push of strength and encouragement to keep going. I apply your philosophies to other areas in my life; the work you all do is SO, SO powerful. Celebrate that—you are changing the world, one foot at a time."
—Lauren DeJulio Bell
CES Summer Marathon Participant

In our opinion, it's our staff of coaches, instructors, pacers and mentors that make us stand out. We all share a passion for helping others reach for and attain their goals—no matter what they might be. Join us today and you'll see what we mean!
