Our Coaching Philosophy

Ekiden believes every athlete deserves a great coach: someone who takes the guesswork out of your training, keeps you accountable and inspires you to achieve your biggest goals. At the beginning of each week, Ekiden Athletes will receive a message from their coach summarizing the upcoming training objectives. Coaches will follow up with their athletes during the week to check in, provide feedback on workouts and answer questions. We believe in the Athlete and Coach relationship, and know firsthand how a great coach can make daily training more fun, motivating, and successful.

Get Matched with a Great Running Coach. When you sign up for a coaching package with Ekiden, we’ll send you a comprehensive questionnaire to help us match you with a great coach who is the right fit for your goals, experience level and communication needs.
