Pikes Peak Elite TC was formed in the fall of 2014 in Colorado Springs, Colorado under the direction of former Olympian and coach, Juli Benson. The club specializes in a wide range of events from 800m to the Marathon, but all come together with one common goal: the 2016 Olympics. Many members of the team are currently serving in the United States Air Force and were selected as part of the Word Class Athlete Program (W.C.A.P.) Their duty is now training full-time towards the 2016 Olympic Trials.
Pikes Peak Elite is proud to call Colorado Springs their home with hundreds of miles of soft-surface trails, the Air Force Academy track, and many of the nation’s best doctors, and therapists in the area. They are also thankful to have Carrie Lane as the team’s strength/conditioning and drills coach and additional coaching and support from former Air Force coach, Mark Stanforth.
