Brenee English, Race Director

Hi! My name is BreneƩ I am your Santa Maria Fitness Series Race Director.

I am a Cal Poly (SLO) alumni who studied Sociology and Psychology. As a natural people person, fitness enthusiast, and running lover my heart is to build community around the sport of running in the Santa Maria area. To provide an opportunity for first time runners or long time racers to come together. I have been running since I joined my middle school track team and haven’t stopped since. Running has had a huge impact on my life. Not only has it given me a physical and competitive outlet but has also taught me about hard work, determination and grit. Three things that have transferred over into my personal and professional life. A few of my favorite things are running (duh!) + crossfit + gluten free muffins + long board skating & spending time with my family and friends, BBQing and dancing like ain’t nobody is watchin! Join me at our first race (January 13th, 2018) and you just might get to see some of my famous dance moves at our post race party! Don’t miss out!

Cheers to healthy living!
