Coach Holly Kane

Coach Holly, a USATF and RRCA certified Running Coach, wants to share her joy of running with everyone she meets.  Since 2012 Holly has been coaching athletes of all levels and ages, from Boston qualifying adults to 6-year-old children. Holly started the Apex Youth Run club with her colleague in 2015, volunteered as the lead coach for the Olive Chapel run club and leads a Facebook community of adult runners aptly named the “Happy Runners”.  Holly is also a middle school Healthful Living/PE teacher at West Lake Middle School.

Coach Holly is married and has 2 daughters. With the support of her family, she has raced numerous marathons including the Boston Marathon (2013 and 2019).   Holly has also raced several ½ marathons and in 2019 she joined an ultra-team to run the Tuna 200-mile relay.  Although a road marathon is her favorite race, recently Holly has found success with local single-track trail races.

As a coach, Holly strives to plan every run so athletes finish feeling strong, successful and happy.  She knows from personal experience that being physically fit produces a positive outlook that will manifest itself into all areas of life.
