Brandon Lausch

A native of Lancaster County, Pa., Brandon has been racing consistently since 2012 and blogging about his running experiences in his current hometown of Swarthmore, Pa., a Philadelphia suburb with a strong community of runners. There, he serves on the board of the Swarthmore Recreation Association and helps organize its annual New Year’s Day 5K and kids’ runs. Brandon credits his wife, Abby, with introducing him to running, encouraging him to run his first race, the Broad Street Run 10 miler, in 2006. He is the father of two girls. Brandon’s motto: Small town ethic, big town fun.
