Interested in expanding your run experiences?
Maybe you just want to develop a regular running routine, to improve your health or strengthen your abilities?
Possibly, you just want to hang out with likeminded people who enjoy running outdoors in this amazing area?
If so, join up with our Fleet Feet Racing Team! The race team consists of runners of all abilities from walkers to speedsters and everyone in between. We have those passionate about short 5k running all the way up to those who love the ultra-distance of 50k or more. We are a diverse group ranging in age from teenagers to seniors. Along with our coaches, we have men and women members who support and encourage you to stay on track with consistent training in a fun team environment.
We use Racing very lightly! Our team meets twice a week for a coached run on either the road or trail based on the current run series. Year-round, we gather up for races and represent wearing our pink and green jerseys.
Coach Jocelyn has been with Fleet Feet Sports since 2013 and is a recent graduate from Southern Oregon University, majoring in Management. She recently returned to Fleet Feet as a co-manager of Folsom and jumped on board as Co-Coach for the Racing Team in March of 2018. Jocelyn has coached for the Junior Olympics as well as the Shamrock’n Training Program in January of 2018. Coaching the racing team is an enlightening experience, watching and following each runner and walker reach their goals and encouraging one another to get there.
Competing at a competitive level for over 9 years, Jocelyn recently decided to make the switch to ultra-running after completing her last track season for SOU. She ran the 10k for track and bounced quickly into her first 50k in August of 2017 and ran the Lake Sonoma 50 Miler in April of 2018. Her long-term goal is to run Western States 100 Miler one day!
Coach Dan has been with Fleet Feet Sports since 2001 and currently manages operations, staffing, and inventory control in our Roseville location. Dan is a local runner and a familiar face around the trail, running in high school for Oakmont and continuing his running career in shorter distances in college.
Our racing team was developed by Dan back in 2013 expanding the team from a handful of dedicated runners to over 150 race members today. He’s ran everything from track to long road races, but now plans to focus primarily on trail and Spartan races. Dan is a USATF Level 1 Coach and has his certification in Good Form Running.
