Revolution Running, Colorado’s premier running training club is launching its first out-of state venture in Bellingham, Washington.
Why Bellingham? Revolution Running founders, Ewen and Heather North spent some time in Bellingham ahead of a group trip to the Whidbey Island Marathon and Half in April 2015, and loved it! As chance would have it, they then connected with ultra running sensation Krissy Moehl, who is from the Bellingham area, and proposed the idea of her starting a Revolution Running group in her hometown. Krissy jumped on the idea since she was planning to return to her Washington roots and an immediate partnership was formed.
“We are ecstatic that Krissy wanted to come on board. She is one of the greatest female ultra runners out there having won many of the most challenging races on the planet. We could not ask for a more experienced and vibrant personality to head up our Bellingham group. Her enthusiasm for all things running is infectious.” Said Owner, Director and Head Coach of Revolution Running, Ewen North.
“The community that Revolution Running has created in the Boulder/Denver area feels like a perfect match for Bellingham. I am so excited to share the amazing platform that Ewen has built with the Bellingham area.” Said Moehl.
“The Bellingham area and Washington in general is a fitness and outdoor paradise. What better place to start our first out of state group and to help like minded people achieve their goals.” North added.
The Bellingham group will kick off its inaugural program in December by training for the Chuckanut 50K in Fairhaven, WA, alongside a winter maintenance/base program to help runners towards spring 10K, half marathon and marathon goals in 2016.
