Running Resume

If you haven't already done so, it's important to put together a running resume to send to prospective coaches, agents, training centers, or shoe companies. The resume, in an abbreviated form, is sometimes requested by elite recruiters at road races as well.

The resume should show your progression over the years starting with high school races and times. Be sure to include your times at various competitions, your top performances for each year, your personal bests in various distances, your mileage and training progression, as well as any injuries. You'll also want to include the names of your schools and coaches.

If you are interested in joining a training center, you will need to fill out the center's application form. Information on your running resume can be included on the training center application, or you can send a copy of your resume with the application.
