Previous testimonials from Ran Marin alums:

“Participating in the Ranmarin training program last summer and this winter has been one of the key secrets to achieving a peak level of fitness during the season. Ranmarin helps build a solid base of fitness for all high school runners; no matter their fitness level at the beginning of the program, runners will see rapid improvement in their fitness and will gain the ability to complete longer and faster runs throughout the solid weeks of training that Ranmarin provides. Gaining that kind of background fitness sets runners up perfectly for a successful and fun cross country or track season in which they will likely see their PR’s drop.” –Julia Maxwell, Stanford University XC/Track (formerly at Branson High School)

“Ranmarin gives you such an edge in the season that most of the girls won’t have. It helps you with race strategies, workouts, and injury prevention. It has also helped me make crazy improvements!” -Sophia Noto, University of Portland XC/Track (formerly at Drake High School)

“Ranmarin Winter Training helped me not only build a solid foundation of fitness but also a confidence that I trained as effectively and intelligently as possible for my first-ever track season.” –Anna Harleen, Williams College XC/Track (formerly at Branson High School)
