testimonials

Jeff Cunningham is one of the greatest coaches, mentors, and friends I’ve had the opportunity to have in my life. He helped me shave 27 minutes off my marathon in 2021 resulting in a 2:56 race and then coached me to run 2:48 a year later. His care, attention to detail, intention for his athletes and the process is second-to-none. Jeff is the only running coach I will work with because he produces results, makes the journey enjoyable and has an amazing personality.

-Nick Bare

Working with Jeff has been one of the most life changing experiences. I have never met a coach that is so genuinely invested in not only his athlete’s success, but also in them as human beings. I felt so supported on an individual level, and it really felt like my plan was designed for me, taking into consideration my busy lifestyle. Within a year, I was able to run a 3:15 marathon - a 16 minute PR, AND a BQ. Jeff was present every step of the way to make sure I was running happy. As he would say “happy runners are fast runners”. So grateful for my experience with Cunningham Running!

If you’re looking for a passionate, relationship-driven coach with a tailored approach to maximize your potential AND longevity, Jeff Cunningham is your guy! As a former division 1 collegiate distance runner with an injury-riddled past, I know the immeasurable value of having a coach I trust wholeheartedly, but also how difficult that is to find. I’ve been working with Jeff for 2 years now and put simply, I can’t imagine working with anyone else. His coaching philosophy has truly taken my running career to new heights, not to mention the incredible impact he’s had on my life personally. With his guidance, I’ve run a 20 minute marathon PR of 2:32 & qualified for the 2024 Olympic Marathon Trials. Jeff is exceptional at his craft and a true student of the sport and it shows!

I am a masters runner and I believe at 54, though at my age my body has different challenges than some of his younger runners, Jeff has shown me the way to obliterate my old PRs and become a constant threat to win my division. Thanks coach!
