Coach Kimberly Henry

Kimberly coaches the Advanced Youth Running Program with PYRC Training.  She has coached Cross Country at Holly Springs High School since 2012 and was named the SWAC XC Coach of the Year in 2017. After starting as an Assistant Coach in 2014, Kimberly became the Head Women’s Track & Field Coach at HSHS in 2017.  In 2012 she created the Holly Springs Cross Country Club for kids aged 9-14 through the Town of Holly Springs Parks and Recreation Department and counts this as one of her greatest running-related accomplishments. She retired from full marathons in 2015, but will still race the very occasional half marathon/10-miler/8K. These days she mainly runs for fun with friends and much prefers training kids and teens. She is fairly famous for screaming, jumping up and down, and crying as she hands out medals to competitors as they cross the finish line of local races.
