Coach Rich started running cross county in 10th grade of high school after being told he was too small to play football. He also ran for the high school track team. His favorite races in high school were the 800 meter and 3,200-meter relay. After high school (graduated in 1984) he gave up running until a few years ago (2018). Since this time, he has run three half marathons and many local 5ks and 10ks. This is his first-year coaching with the Race Team RVA and looks forward to helping folks on their running journeys.
