We inspire kids to go the distance.

 
 
 

Mission

Park City Running Club runs on friendship, entertainment and competition. With every step in training, racing and volunteering, we teach the skills of teamwork, self-discipline and healthy lifestyles. Above all, we give kids confidence to go far beyond the finish line.

Rachel Taylor. I have a passion for teaching. The first time I watched a young kid light up with pride after learning something new, I was hooked. After pride comes the excitement of developing new skills and eventually, new levels of self-confidence. That’s the powerful influence of a teacher.

I also have a passion for running. I love the simplicity. I love being outside. I love the hard work and self-discipline. Running is rejuvenating. And refreshing. It’s the only activity that makes you feel so tired, yet stronger at the same time. That’s the power of running.

As a coach at Park City Running Club, I am excited to combine my experience as an elementary teacher with my history as a competitive runner to help kids empower themselves.

Kristin Brown. I am a mom to two little boys and a director at a women’s endurance sports clothing company, Coeur Sports.  I’ve loved running since a young age and did my first race at 5. I was involved in triathlon for years, which kept me active in track workouts and running distances up to the marathon. With a background in physiology, I am very eager to share my knowledge, experience and enthusiasm for running with the PCRC team.  Running can be a life-long sport that builds confidence and camaraderie, relieves stress and refreshes the mind. Plus, it’s fun!
