Training Services – Kopf Running

Team CCO is excited to announce a partnership with Seth Kopf, owner of Kopf Running. Kopf Running is an endurance coaching company that specializes in working with charity athletes.


Coach Seth provides customized training programs for any distance race as a certified running coach through USA Track & Field and the Road Runner’s Club of America. He has run numerous marathons, including six Chicago Marathons, his hometown race. Coach Seth creates programs personalized to the individual, and the programs are easy to follow – for both the beginner and experienced runner.

Through Kopf Running, Team CCO is offering discounted* virtual online training programs, which will be available to all Team CCO runners. Seth will work with each team member to create a personalized training plan, no matter if you are participating in your very first marathon or if you are attempting to qualify for the prestigious Boston Marathon. Along with a training plan, team members will receive weekly training & nutrition tips and ‘Ask the Coach’ email support.

“I really enjoy working with charity runners – they have such inspirational stories of why they are taking on the challenge of a marathon. When looked at as a whole, training for a marathon can seem overwhelming. I take a simplistic approach – one day at a time, one foot in front of the other until you reach the finish line. I am really looking forward to working with Team CCO runners.”
