They have completed 57 and 8 marathons, respectively, and coached more than 3,000 runners and walkers along the way. Armed with invaluable experience in areas such as footwear, form and technique, hydration, and proper stretching, they coach participants of all fitness levels toward their goals of training for runs of all distances, including 5K, 10K, half marathons, and full marathons. Of Robert and Euri’s students, 99% have crossed the finish line, and 80% of those were first-time runners.
We train as a team every Saturday morning in Marina Del Rey at 8am, starting October 8th, 2016. To find out more, contact Coach Robert at club26.2@gmail.com.
