June 6, 2023 – ATLANTA – Today, Atlanta Track Club announced its search for a new head coach. The below statement is from Atlanta Track Club CEO Rich Kenah.
“In early 2015, Atlanta Track Club hired its first full-time coach in its 50-year history. With the intention of growing the Club’s commitment to its training programs while also standing up a new Olympic Development program for post-collegiate athletes, coaches Amy and Andrew Begley took on the challenge and in doing so helped us build one of the best running club-based programs in the nation.
I want to thank our coaches for their tireless commitment to the mission of Atlanta Track Club. Their impact has been felt by everyone they have touched in this running community. While I have decided the Club will go in a different direction after this season, Amy and Andrew have laid the foundation for the future success of the Club and the elite athletes who have chosen us as their home. I wish them the best on their career next steps.”
