Mark Coalmer


Mark Coalmer has coached the Elite Group since inception (this is our second season, lol). In his 35+ years of running he has raced distances from 400 meters to 50 miles, yet is still setting lifetime personal bests. 2022 will be his third year of qualifying for the World Marathon Majors Age Group World Championships, and he has previously qualified for USTA Triathlon Age Group National Championships and achieved Ironman All World Athlete status. Mark prioritizes and promotes a physical/mental/emotional/spiritual life balance by example and in his coaching, and he is always ready with a pun or witty comment to keep the fun and laughter in group runs and events.
