We are Pikes Peak Elite Track Club, a group of middle and long distance runners training in Colorado Springs towards the 2016 Olympic Trials and Games. We all run for Coach Juli Benson, a 1996 Olympian and former Air Force Academy coach. Many of us serve in the U.S. Air Force and were selected for the World Class Athlete Program to train full time towards the 2016 Olympics. Training is a full-time job for all of us, but we also believe strongly in giving back to the community. Most of all, while extremely competitive and serious about our training, we love to keep it fun and focus on enjoying the journey–a journey we hope you’ll follow along!
