Philadelphia Running Coach



As a



Cory's coaching expertise is derived from a combination of personal experience and exposure to world-class coaches and professional athletes. Throughout Cory's running career, he has been fortunate to be surrounded by some of the world's best athletes and coaches.  These people have shaped the way he coaches and inspired him to become a coach himself.   Most notable are his high school coach, Jim McCoach, and college coaches, Jim Tuppeny and Marcus O'Sullivan. 


Cory, a USA Track & Field Level 2 Endurance Certified Running Coach and full time running coach, started guiding athletes in 2009 when he co-founded Villanova Elite, a running club providing support to post-collegiate distance runners.  As club founder, Cory helped guide several of their athletes to multiple personal bests.  Today, along with being the Head Coach of Run Your Personal Best, he's also Head Men's & Women's Cross Country Coach at Penn State Brandywine.



Cory first entered the national running scene in high school, where he qualified for the National Cross Country Championships and earned a spot as one of the top 25 cross country runners in the US.  As a member of the track & field team, he held three Maryland State records and finished his high school career with the 6th fastest 2 mile in the US.


Following high school Cory attended Villanova University where he was consistently a top performer earning 8 NCAA D1 Regional Qualifiers including 2 at the NCAA D1 National Championships. He earned multiple honors in both cross-country and track & field including Big East and Mid Atlantic.


Today, Cory runs for one of the nation's premier running clubs, Bryn Mawr Running Company and holds personal records of 3:45 - 1500 meters, 4:03 mile, 8:05 3000 meters, 14:13 5k and the most recent of 1:10:28 1/2 marathon in Novemer 2014.

Results that speak for themselves.

"Cory is a great coach. After 10+ years of running on my own and following random online plans I decided to see what would happen if I listened to someone other than myself. Boy am I glad I did! Because of his guidance I had a 3min PR for my half marathon."

Carrie H.

"A friend recommended Cory... I enjoyed the variety of quality workouts. Mentally I never got bored and physically was challenged to run faster and harder than ever before. Ultimately, I dropped 8 minutes at under Cory's watchful eye!"

Erik M.

"My goal was to break four hours in the marathon in May, even though my previous best time was a 4:50:40. On May 6th, not only did I break four hours for my marathon - I ran a 3:50:40! Cory is incredibly available to his clients. He does not hesitate to set up phone consults, and he genuinely cares about you as a person."

Abby K.

"I had plateaued around 16:50 in the 5k and was working harder than ever before. That's when I got in touch with Cory, who told me I was running myself into the ground. By scaling back and getting smart we've been able to increase my performance dramatically. Over the weekend I ran a 16:21, a 22 second PR."

Chris M.

"I dropped my 1/2 marathon time by 3 minutes in these last 5 months. Cory is accessible, knowledgable, friendly, and genuinely cares about the success of his athletes. I have asked his advice on race pacing, to shoes, to fueling long runs, to strength training, and he has always led me in the right direction." 

Beth G.

"With his program I got a massive marathon PR and a solid Boston Qualifying time.  He is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. He took the time to teach me about marathon nutrition and helped me understand the muscle physiology behind training for aerobic and anaerobic metabolism."

Kathryn D.

"I had not PR’d in years and just had ankle surgery. Let’s just say, after working with him in the last 4 months, I have PR’d my 10k and now my half marathon time. My ultimate goal is a sub 2 hour half marathon and after yesterday’s race, I can now see that it’s realistic thanks to the customized training plan Cory gives me."

Katie L.

"Cory helped me to BQ by over 10 minutes, even with the new standards, this was the best trained for and best executed race I’ve ever been able to run thanks to his help. Running with Cory has given me a renewed joy for running. With Cory it was possible, joyful, and I crossed the finish line with pure happiness."
