Tomorrow Denver Track Club members will fly to New York City to compete in the 2015 USA Track & Field Club National Championships. The DTC is currently ranked 7th in the nation and our goal is to maintain or improve our position. Our performance list is as follows:

Ruth Waller-Liddle
Ruth was our team’s MVP at Nationals last year in Seattle. At the conclusion of the meet Ruth had accumulated medals in all of her events. This year she will be racing in the 800m, 400m hurdles, and the 3000m steeplechase. #GoRuth

Mesfin Ferede
Mesfin is looking exceptionally strong at this point in the season. He dropped 9 seconds off of last year’s Superior Downhill Mile time with a time of 3:53! His current SB in the 1500m is 3:55 and he is in much better shape right now. Wish him luck as he attempts to break the Club Nationals 1500m record. #GoMesfin

Jerry Quiller Classic Track Meet, Boulder, Colorado
Brittni Hutton
Brittni is having a break-out season! Her tenacious win in the citizens race (Bolder Boulder 10k)  resulted in her besting 6 of the 7 Americans in the professional race. Brittni will be going for the win in the 5000m. #GoBrittni

Angelina Ramos
Coach Ramos is not your average coach. Not only is she more motivating/vocal than the other coaches, but she also races her heart out for our team. Other teams may have more money and athletes, but we are the only team with coach Ramos 🙂 #GoRamos

Brandon Birdsong
Brandon is an elite runner that hasn’t raced in 7 months. This will be his first race (5000m) since having foot surgery. Wish him luck! #GoBirdsong

Amy Dannwolf-Jones
Amy was one of the founding members of the Denver Track Club. After a 3 year break she is looking fit and is ready to do some damage in the 1500m. #GoAmy

Ben Carlson
Just when you thought Ben retired to recreational running, he exploded back on the Colorado track scene. With an altitude advantage, he is hoping to run sub-50 in the 400m. #GoBen

Tim Badger
Moving back to the 400m this year, Badger is out to prove that he has a little more speed in the tank. #GoBadger
