*What Is Team Utopia?*
Since establishing itself as an official USATF club in 2000, the club has since launched it's official website in February of 2002. With the help of the internet and the successful teaching styles of Coach Jim Bowles, Team Utopia has grown to 137 members in 2012.
Coach Jim Bowles has over 20 years experience coaching runners at the college level, 10 of which were in NCAA Division I. Coach Bowles also has an impressive resume as a world class runner himself that includes:
- Top 20 finish at the 1975 Boston Marathon
- Qualifier for the 1976 Olympic Marathon Trials
- 4 completed marathons under 2 hours and 20 minutes
- Personal Bests of 4:01 in the Mile & 13:43 in the 5K
The thing that really makes Team Utopia thrive is it's members. Runners of all abilities from all walks of life. Every runner shares the passion for the sport of running and the desire to better their skills, break personal bests, and increase their speed. But, most importantly, we all have fun while doing it.
