Coach Derrick Ettel
Derrick found his passion for running in his mid-twenties, long after most athletes ran through high school and college. However, the sport quickly became an obsession leading him to 605 Running Company and extensive training of his own. Coach Derrick will partner with any athlete, from first-time runners to seasoned road runners looking to take the next step. His unorthodox journey into running makes him a perfect fit for runners of all types. Coach Derrick will meet you where you are and help you safely reach all of your running goals.
Under Derrick’s guidance, his athletes have qualified for the Boston Marathon, won races, set dozens of personal bests, or confidently completed a race distance for the first time.
