Collegiate Running Summer Program

Last Updated: 13.Jun.2019

We are excited to introduce our first collegiate runner to the summer athlete contingent: Quinn Cooney. New this year, the goal of our Collegiate Running Summer Program is to support dedicated collegiate runners as they train for the fall Cross Country season while also giving them valuable work experience here at the Center. In addition to training this summer, Quinn will act as the collegiate running coach for all of our summer running camps and help lead our weekly community running programs. Quinn has also elected to work with the Center's sustainability team on a number of summer projects. We are happy to have you on board, Quinn! 

More on Quinn: Quinn is a 2019 graduate of Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH and will be spending his first summer at the Craftsbury Outdoor Center before returning to Hanover for a degree in environmental and energy engineering. Quinn runs cross-country, indoor, and outdoor track at Dartmouth and has served as the captain of the cross-country team in 2018 and 2019. On the track he runs the 5k-10k but describes himself as a “grass specialist”. In 2018 after finishing 10th at the DI cross-country regional meet, he was named First Team All-Northeast Region. The same season he was named the team's outstanding performer. In 2019 he received the Paul S. Harmon Trophy for Improvement in Distance Running. Quinn loves running on soft surfaces with a belly full of freshly brewed coffee and maple oats, preferably when it’s under 85 degrees. Outside of running, Quinn is passionate about sustainable design, clean renewable energy, endurance sports, pour over coffee, The Avett Brothers, looking ridiculous, and Mario Kart Double Dash.
