Why TeamRunRun is great for both runner’s & coaches….
I’ve been a running coach for middle age athletes since 2014. It’s been a challenge during COVID to coach runners in person and it’s always been a challenge to attract runner’s whom I can coach virtually. In April of 2020, I started coaching with the TeamRunRun group. Working with TeamRunRun has really helped my coaching business in only a few short months. My goal with this review of TeamRunRun is to provide a candid assessment of how TeamRunRun can help both runner’s and coaches.
What Is TeamRunRun?
TeamRunRun is a marketplace and complete training resource for runners of all abilities to connect with experienced coaches and other runners who are training for races of varying distances on the track, trails and roads. Inside TeamRunRun’s portal, you’ll find a enthusiastic group of runner’s and coaches. These are people from all over the globe who are interested in becoming better runners at distances from 1 mile through 50mile+ Ultraas.
I really like TeamRunRun because I get to Coach with my own philosophy and set my own price, but most important I know that I have all of the TeamRunRun staff & coaches behind me.
As an RRCA certified running coach, I’m well aware that we’re always learning in this sport. With TeamRunRun, both runner’s and coaches enjoy a highly interactive support forum for coaches and athletes on critical topics such as training, racing, nutrition, strength & cross training, gear & injury prevention.
These days it seems like most races have been cancelled or are virtual, but through TeamRunRun, I have access to race reports from all over the globe. The group reports on new races (virtual & in person) & the accomplishments of the athletes in the group, every week. It’s very motivating to see so many athletes training & achieving their goals. You’re not training by yourself anymore, you’re training with the TeamRunRun community by your side.
