Lauren Curley

Lauren re-discovered her love of running in 2016 as a way to manage the stress of graduate school and get back in shape. She joined a local running team and tried her hand at everything from the 1-mile to the half marathon. After getting hooked on long mountainous training runs, Lauren won her first 50k in 2017 and ran her first marathon in 2018, finishing in 2:57. She focuses on both road and trail races, although the mountains have always been her favorite. She got her USATF Level 1 coaching certification in early 2020 as a way to help support her local running club. Lauren remembers the pacers from her first half marathon in Zion National Park and how much better they made the race experience. She wants to help others reach their time goals and have the best race experience possible!
