Whether you’ve already met Olympian Carrie Tollefson or this will be your first chance, you’ll quickly agree when we describe her as the fun girl next door who just happens to be a hall-of-fame elite runner and broadcaster.
You’ll hear her on ESPN and NBC Sports as a commentator at the Chicago, Boston and New York marathons, internationally at track and field championships, and at home on her C Tolle Run podcast. She also loves to coach women at Moms on the Run as National Fitness Director and be mom to her three kids: Ruby, Greer and Everett. Carrie will lead the fun during our destination weekend activities — but beware, you never know when she’ll break out in dance moves!
Our early registration tees are gone, but you can still get your event shirt!
