BIO

Hi! I’m Coach Katie Kellner. I am an elite distance runner, currently sponsored by Tracksmith and the Craftsbury Green Racing Project. In college, I ran for Cornell University, where I was a 3x NCAA Division I All-American and 3x Ivy League Champion. As a professional, I have focused primarily on the marathon, competing in both the 2016 and 2020 Olympic Marathon Trials. I have had the honor of representing Team USA on two occasions, once at the Chiba International Ekiden Relay in Chiba, Japan and once at the BUPA Great Edinburgh Cross Country Race in Edinburgh, Scotland.

 

I began coaching in 2014, and since then, I have worked with hundreds of runners, from those aiming to run their first 5k to those trying to crush a marathon. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Human Biology & Health from Cornell University, a Masters in Public Health from Boston University, and a Special Skills Certificate in Emergency Medicine from Macomb Community College. I often refer to the information I’ve gathered about health, nutrition, anatomy & physiology, and psychology to tweak my athletes’ training plans and answer their questions. I enjoy sharing my knowledge with others and always seem to learn new things from each athlete that I coach!
