Train with Northwoods Running

A Running Coach For All Levels ~

Real Coaching For Real People Chasing Extraordinary Dreams

  • Maybe you are new to trail or ultra running and want to avoid injuries or shorten the learning curve. 

  • Possibly you are an experienced runner looking for additional guidance, accountability or a plateau breaking change-up.

  • You're already a busy person and you simply don’t have the time to research, plan and schedule training. 

  • You are looking for someone to come alongside and provide you with a plan and experience to achieve your goals.

My professional and athletic experience and unique approach will provide the traction necessary for you to hit the ground running. I personally work with each trainee to help you achieve your athletic goals. I push but I also motivate. Early on, I identify what you are capable of with my goal being to help you reach, then exceed, that potential.

A little bit about Northwoods Running

My name is Jeff Miller, and I have been training and coaching athletes since 2010. After a couple years as a licensed, one-on-one personal trainer, I obtained my RRCA Certified Adult Running Coach certification. I LOVE coaching runners, and Northwoods Running is my full-time job. (My wife said, “for richer or poorer,” right?)
I am passionate about running and helping others stay active and healthy — not just for a race, but for their entire lives.

What you can expect

I provide online coaching services from locations in Southern Minnesota and on the North Shore. If you hire me, you can expect personalized training plans, in-depth analysis of your workouts, and frequent check-ins via email, phone and video chats.
If you are serious about running at any level, let me guide you to achieving your goals. I have the experience and ability to help you whether you are looking to run your first 10K or if you want to become a better ultramarathoner. Most clients come to me for personalized run coaching, but I can also help with aspects of triathlon.

A little bit about me

I began competing in 1979 by running cross country. That experience kicked off a lifetime as an athlete. I have been training and competing consistently since then. Some of my credentials include:

  • Six years of Category 2 cycling at a national level

  • Two-time participant at the Duathlon National Championship

  • Three Ironman Triathlon finishes

  • Hundreds of races of varying distances, including 100-mile trail ultramarathons & 24 hour races

I am married with two grown kids and two grandchildren. My wife and I love to spend as much time as possible on the Superior Hiking Trail in northern Minnesota. Welcome to our running family!
