The WRCC Newsletter will move to a twice monthly publication. We will continue to research, explore, interview, and report on women's coaching in our sport of running and track and field.
The Women's Running Coaches Collective is proud to announce the addition of Laura Caldwell as Co-Editor of our WRCC Newsletter. As a runner, Laura ran at the college and professional levels, achieving both national and international recognition. When at Florida State, Laura Ledbetter Caldwell held the 800 meter school record. In her post collegiate career she ran as a professional distance runner, competing for NIKE. Among her many running accomplishments, Laura placed 8th in the 1987 USA Women's Marathon Championships, won the 1992 Seattle Marathon, won USA Masters 5,000 Track Championship, and was the 1993 USA Masters Cross Country Champion. At age 43 she ran 1:15:52 for a half marathon. Her incredible talent as a runner allowed her success in events ranging from the 800 to the marathon!
Laura Caldwell has been a successful coach at the high school, college, and elite levels. She was a founding member of the Portland, Or. women's running club, Team Athena, and was their first president. As the cross country coach of the girls team at Lake Oswego HS, Oregon, her runners consistently qualified for the Oregon 6A State Meet, and reached the podium in 2007. In the 1980's she was the editor of the successful publication, Racing South Magazine. In 2010 she joined the coaching staff at Furman University. She currently coaches with the Greenville Track Club Elite.
Please welcome Laura Caldwell to the Women's Running Coaches Collective. We look forward to her expertise in coaching and racing, as she helps shape the future of the WRCC in her role as Co-Editor of the Newsletter and as a member of the WRCC.
