Coach's Bio

Matt Barrett ran cross country for Nebraska Wesleyan University between 1992 and 1995.  He remains an active recreational runner, and enjoys pouring his competitive spirit into young runners developing their mental resiliency along with their physical ability. Matt has developed and continues teaching "Off and Running", a class at UCCS since 2010, which in ten weeks trains college freshmen of varying running experience levels to run a half marathon.  He coaches with the philosophy that the keys to success are practice and determination, instilling the belief that you can do anything you set your mind to in his runners.  He has coached cross country at BLPA since 2015.  BLPA has won their league championship in 2015 and 2016.
