Background

With a storied running career that has included All-American cross country honours at the College of William and Mary, an individual bronze medal at the 2011 NACAC Cross Country Championships, and a 2013-2015 UK stint training with Run-Fast in London, Colin has progressed to a new level in 2017 and the early stage of 2018.

Colin kicked off 2017 with a 2:18:16 debut marathon that netted him 8th place against a strong Houston Marathon field. After a series of impressive finishes in major US races in the Fall, including a career best 64:58 clocking to place 7th at the Rock ‘n’ Roll San Jose Half Marathon, Colin capped off a stellar year with a breakthrough 2:15:33 performance at the California International Marathon, which incorporated the USA Marathon Championships. In 2018 he has continued to impress in key races, running 45:38 in the Gate River Run 15k (also a national championship event) and finishing in front of some of the country’s top talents. Colin now turns his focus to the track, aiming to qualify for the USATF Outdoor Championships in the 10,000m run.
