Geno Atencio

Organizer - Marathon/Half Marathon

I started running later than most, but once I started I never looked back. I have run numerous 5k’s,10k’s half and full marathons, including St. George (multiple times), Boston, Big Sur and the Dublin marathon. I became certified with Road Runners Club of America ( RRCA ) and have been coaching for several years. I have focused on recreational runners and have had great success. This is my fifth year coaching USA FIT and my fourth year as an organizer. I am looking forward to another great season!
