Chief Running Guru – Marc Pelerin

Marc has worked with scores of runners in the Cherry Hill and South Jersey area.  His training programs are flexible and accommodating to each individual athlete.  Runners and non-runners alike use Marc as a springboard for their various competitions,  including lacrosse, cross country, track and field, and law enforcement tests.

As an online coach, Marc works with runners competing in races ranging from 800 meters to ultramarathons.  Training plans are updated biweekly and offer the maximum amount of flexibility and individualization that each runner needs to be successful.
