Coach Robinson

Coach Mark Robinson

A passionate, experienced and extensively certified endurance running coach that works locally and globally with athletes from the middle school to the Masters divisions competing in track and field, cross country and road racing. He coaches distances from the 800 meters to the marathon using current science-based event-specific training.

Elite Coaching Certifications:

  • USA Track & Field (USATF) Levels 1, 2 and 3 Endurance Events
  • International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) Level 5 Endurance Events
  • USTFCCCA - Track & Field Technical and Endurance Event Specialist

He has been coaching runners since 2007 and was the head endurance coach of the Central Florida Gliders Track & Field and Cross Country Club from 2007-2016 where he coached numerous athletes that meddled at:

  • USA Junior National Championships
  • USATF and AAU Youth National Championships
  • High School State Championships
  • Middle School State Championships

One of his proudest accomplishments was helping an inexperienced but talented middle school girl go from being one of the top distance runners in her small school district in Florida to one of the top runners for her age division in the USA in just 14 months (using an age-appropriate workload). Ashley went from running a 5:57 1600m and 2:43 800m in May 2014 at the end of her 6th grade school season, to running a 4:38 1500m (~4:58 1600m) and 2:14 800m in July 2015.
