Kevin Ruppel

Gaithersburg Marathon / Half Marathon Coach

Kevin started running when he was a teen in high school. A couple of years after getting out of college he took a 20 plus year hiatus from running. In his late 40’s he decided to give running another shot. Not too long after that, with the help of some amazing coaches, he found myself doing something he never envisioned, crossing the finish line of his first full marathon. The feeling he had crossing that finish line, he knew he had to give back to other runners. Ever since he has been pacing and coaching runners to help them reach their goals, from finishing their first 5K to crossing the finish line at 26.2 miles and beyond. Kevin is a RRCA Certified Coach with over seven years of coaching experience.
