Amy Rusiecki

Ultra/Trail Coach

Amy used to consider herself a cross country skier who ran for most of her youth, competing in both cross country running and cross country skiing through middle school, high school, and DIII College. With a focus on xc skiing, her best season was finishing 3rd overall collegiate nationals, and helping her team win a National Title. Post-collegiate, it was harder and harder to ski at the same level, and ultimately she shifted her focus to running.

Her running-focused journey started with road racing up to the marathon distance. A few injuries lead to several seasons of triathlons and bike racing. Ultimately, after a dare with a friend to run a 50-mile race, Amy fell in love with trail running and ultras. She has three times represented the USA at World Trail Championships, her best finish was at the 2013 World Trail Champs where she was the top American and 15th female. Amy has raced up and down the East Coast (and a bit around the world), and ultimately enjoys running no matter the distance, terrain, or location – she just wants to be pushing her body, meeting amazing people, and having epic experiences.

Amy has been coaching for 18 years now, working with High School and College running and xc ski teams, being named ‘Coach of the Year’ three times. She started personal running coaching for ultra and trail runners in 2014. Since then, she has helped runners focus training towards their goals such as achieving their first sub-24-hour 100-mile finish, breaking 140-miles in a 24 hour race, and achieving a BQ marathon. She enjoys working with all athletes, because she honestly believes that through hard work and dedication, anyone can achieve their goals!

Beyond running, coaching (and her full time job as an environmental engineer), Amy also directs the Vermont 100 Endurance Race, Seven Sisters Trail Race, and Chesterfield Gorge Races. She’s sponsored by Inov-8 shoes and Drymax socks.
