KELLY WALBURN (Head Coach)

Kelly began her own running adventure in 2011 when she trained for the Great Race, just to see if she could complete a 5k and check it off her bucket list. Proud of the accomplishment but not quite “hooked”, she reluctantly signed up for a second 5k and ran it in a faster time. That’s when things clicked! Motivated by the ability to improve and by the encouragement of new running friends, 5ks soon became 10ks, which became half and full marathons. Wanting to help others meet their goals too, she became an RRCA and USATF certified running coach.

Coach Kelly has worked with all kinds of runners, from milers to marathoners, middle school to masters, but her favorites are beginners like you.  “I love to help people discover their strength, to find the best in themselves, and to be excited about life. I love to see them Begin to Win!”
