About
Coach Delancey

Running History

Hi! My name is Derek DeLancey. Running has been my passion for over 20 years when I started going to my future wife’s college track meets. I have over 10 years of coaching experience with runners ranging from the mile to ultra marathon distance. 

My philosophy emphasizes consistency with a mix of hard efforts, easy runs, and long runs that simulate race conditions. There is nothing I enjoy more than helping others get to levels that they didn’t think were possible. I consider myself to be a running nerd, always reading and learning as much as possible about the running world. 

I love the running community and the strength that working together gives to runners. My favorite distance to coach is the marathon and I have coached numerous sub 3 hour finishes and Boston Qualifiers. I am 100% invested in my athletes success! The best way to find out about me is to ask my athletes!
