We’ve put together an amazing team of coaches that want to help you have fun and improve your fitness. A typical session will have a warmup, game, workout, longer game, then exercises.
Ashley Solenberger pulls from a wide variety of experiences to develop his coaching philosophy. He grew up swimming, and playing soccer and basketball. As an adult he teaches elementary PE and has coached soccer at the high school level. Athletically, he has competed in triathlons from the sprint to Ironman distance often placing in the top 10 overall. Over the last 8 years, he has focused mostly on running again competing at a variety of distances from the mile to the marathon. He enjoys a speed session much more than a long run but appreciates the benefits of both.
Brenda Hodge is the founder and CEO of RUN717. She currently coaches over 40 adult runners, but misses the fun and energy of working with the youth. She hopes this program will help support local school programs and encourage athletes to be lifelong runners.
All coaches have required clearances to work with youth.
