Coach John Tate

John is certified by the US Track & Field Association since 2018. He ran his first marathon in 1997 – the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington DC. Completely dissatisfied with his performance, he returned to the same marathon in 1998, followed by the Lasalle Banks Chicago Marathon(s) in 1999 & 2000. John’s journey began with those four marathons followed by 20+ marathons, a number of half-marathons, 10Ks, and 5Ks. He ran and finished his final marathon – the 120th Boston Marathon – in 2016.

John’s passion for running and now coaching is about profiling and understanding his athletes and to build the best plan that helps each maximize his/her efforts on race day through Speed, Endurance, and Recovery. He has coached over 40 runners who’ve run personal bests at the Bank of America Chicago Marathon, the Boston Marathon, New York City Marathon, Marine Corps Marathon, Anthem Richmond Marathon/Half-Marathon, City of Oaks Half Marathon, Tobacco Road Half Marathon, plus others.

John’s Favorite Quote: “The lesson of running is to train well, and then have full faith in your training and show the proof in the race.” Eliud Kipchoge.
