coach BRITTANY PETERSON
RUN, INJURY PREVENTION & REHABILITATION COACH
Brittany Peterson has been a runner her entire life and has always had a passion for adventuring. As a high school runner, trail running and adventuring were instilled early on, where training in the local state park was a large part of the culture of her team.
Brittany grew accustomed to higher volume training early in her running career and ran her first and second marathons at 17 and 18 years of age (Grandma’s Marathon in Duluth, Minnesota).
Brittany ran track and cross country in college and later enjoyed running marathons after college, qualifying for and running the Boston Marathon twice.
Brittany felt like she found her true self when she found the world of trail running, mountain running and ultra-running. This is where her running career truly blossomed, with 2nd and 4th place finishes at the Western States Endurance Run, a 3rd overall ranking in the World Skyrunning Series and several other wins and course records to her name.
Brittany aims to explore the unseen places of the world by finding new races that peak her interest with regard to travel, terrain and challenge. Brittany has goals to continue pursuing the highest level of performance and competing on the world stage to continue to see what she is capable of as an athlete. Both of these goals compliment her ultimate goal as an athlete which is to keep running fun and to focus on longevity to ensure she can continue to run for many years to come.
Brittany values versatility and enjoys flat, fast training, mountain and technical running training, as well as peak bagging, FKT’s and other mountain adventures. She has been coaching since 2019 and brings a background of injury prevention through her training and education as an occupational therapist and understanding of the human body.
Brittany also values the coach-athlete relationship and incorporates her background in teaching with her approach to coaching athletes. Keeping training fun, diverse, yet focused and specific is a large part of her philosophy as a coach.
