Ken Richardson – Utah Running Expert

Ken Richardson        

Runner, Daddy, Coach, Co-founder UtahRunning.com


Ken Richardson is currently working to achieve new PRs in all areas of his life.  He enjoys his work as an HR Manager, but his true passion is running.  He graduated from Weber State University where he competed in cross country and track.  While at WSU he met his beautiful bride.  Ken is also a Level 1 Certified USA Track and Field Coach.

While competing at WSU, Ken qualified twice to compete at the NCAA Championships.  In his final year, he faced some injury challenges which forced him to stop competing.  He feels the experiences associated with those injuries helped him to develop as a person and as a runner.  He believes one of the most important things we can do is keep ourselves fit and healthy.  He continues to compete in local road races.

Athletic Accomplishments

PRs:  3,000 m- 8:19; 5,000m – 14:14; half-marathon – 68:49

Ken is married to Janae and they currently run the streets of Ogden, Utah.  Their children, Raelee and Teague frequently join them in their jogging stroller.

    I have one leg that is shorter than the other. I look really awkward when I run with my friends. I was wondering if you offer private running lessons that will help me overcome my short leg complex?

  2. Cameron G. says:

    I can run faster running backwards than I can running forward, any suggestions?
