Ben Whitehead

Ben took up running at age 28 as a means to start living a healthier lifestyle. He’s raced everything from the mile to the marathon, but his favorite distance is the half. Running gives Ben a sense of community, pride, and a means to connect with all things around. His mantra is “Relentless Forward Progress,” something Ben knows is a must in the world of ups and downs. No matter the struggle, it’s always about taking┬áthe bad with the good, remaining as positive as possible, and using past experiences to better the future. Ben is a middle school math teacher in Colorado. If he’s not running, he’s likely spending time with his family, hiking, and exploring throughout the Rocky Mountains.
