Jeff Mogavero is a Missoula based coach who lives and breathes running. Jeff turned to trail and ultra-length races after years of middle school, high school, and collegiate track and cross country in the Northeast. A desire to explore wild places brought Jeff’s running from the 8k races in college to 100 mile races and adventures in the mountains of the West. Jeff has spent summers hitchhiking to various races, hiking off trail to count fish in lakes, and can usually be found surfing the Clark Fork River in downtown Missoula, Montana if he’s not out on the trails. 

Jeff passionately believes that running should be fun. As your coach, he wants to help you tap into the joy of running to improve as an athlete. No matter the distance or surface, Jeff is ready to help you chase your running goals and dreams (and have a blast while doing it!). Jeff specializes in coaching race oriented trail runners.

Running Coach Maddie TightMaddie Tight is a San Rafael, CA based running coach who has a life long love of sport. This love was ignited  playing soccer and it stayed her #1 passion through college. However after graduating, the old punishment of running quickly evolved to become one of her greatest joys. As a Physical Therapist and certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, it is Maddie’s daily mission to guide individuals along a healthy and injury-free path toward reaching their physical peak. Her goal as a running coach is to instill a positive attitude toward the repetition of putting one foot in front of the other so that this year’s goals will morph into next, and you can create a lifelong friendship with running. Her aim is to be there to take the guess work out of training, to save you precious time, and help organize your training plan to match your specific goals.
From an athletic and professionally-equipped background, Maddie strives to integrate her enthusiasm of strength work into each individual’s running calendar in order to optimally load and prepare your body for whichever trail is coming their way. Personally, she’s on the 30k trail kick, but loves working with people from 5k and beyond, whether it be your first or 100th race. Email to schedule a free consult.
