Coach Scott Williams
Scott Williams has been a runner for almost his whole life, and he is looking forward to coaching with the Run Hub group for the first time. Since moving to Oregon in 2015, he has set personal bests in several distances on a variety of surfaces, including 15:36 for 5k, 1:12 in the half marathon, 2:32 for the marathon and 17:11 for 100 miles on trails. Last fall he helped the Bowerman Track Club Masters 40+ team to a first place finish at the USATF cross country club national championships by finishing 12th. Unfortunately he injured his foot during that race and hasn’t been able to return to full health yet, but he hopes to channel that energy into coaching others this fall. During the day, he works as a speech pathologist at the Oregon Rehab Center. Outside of running, Scott enjoys working in the garden and camping and exploring all over Oregon. Scott and his wife Wendy are expecting their first child around the first of the year!
