About our Lead Trainer:

Dawn Helgeson: She has been a runner for about 20 years. She started running by doing a program her husband developed similar to the “Couch to 5K” programs available today. Slowly she worked her way up over the next few years until she ran her first half marathon in Disney and then a marathon in Chicago. She was hooked!! She has participated in training programs through the years which helped her learn a lot about running and also build lasting friendships and running buddies. Peoria is lucky to have a strong running community and she is looking forward to helping all of you become a part of it as well!
