Head Coach

Hi! I’m Korey. I am the Coach and owner here at Upper Left Distance Training. Located in Ashland, Oregon (in the upper left corner of The United States) I coach runners of all abilities, through all distances, on all surfaces.

I have years of experience as a regionally competitive athlete and have been fortunate enough to run over 50 road and trail races around the U.S. I currently hold a PR of 1:15 in the Half Marathon (road), 2:41 in the Marathon (road), 4:01 in the 50K (trail) and 7:14 in the 50 Mile (mountain/trail). 

There’s no doubt about it: achieving a new PR or winning a race is an amazing feeling! And I will help you get there. I do like to remind all of our athletes though, that time goals are only a small piece of the personal fulfillment we’re able to gain from hard work, consistency, and a commitment to the training process. Contentedness won’t often come from numbers on a clock, but from the joy we find in our day-to-day miles and our day-to-day lives.

If you’re interested in receiving support, guidance, and accountability through personal run coaching, and if progressing and kicking ass sounds like your cup of tea, please get in touch!

I would love to have you to join the team, 

 – Coach Korey
