Loretta Tobolske-Horn

Hi! My name is Loretta Tobolske-Horn and I am a running coach from Brighton, Michigan supporting a diverse range of athletes across the country. I am a lifelong runner aside from taking a short break to raise my family. I returned to running to inspire my children to find the love of running. I have been involved in the sport as a competitive runner, track & field, cross country coach, marathon pace coach, race director, currently facilitator for Ornery Mule Racing online book club and producer of The Dirt Trail Running Podcast.yM

I am an ultramarathon runner, UESCA Ultramarathon certified running coach, Certified RRCA Coach, trained in CrossFit, CrossFit Kids, CrossFit Endurance, Pose, Chi, and Good Form Running, Ainsley’s Angels Runner with a background in special education. Some of my running accomplishments include: Overall Female at Alexander County 24 hour 2021, 3rd place at Six Days in the Dome 24 hour 2021, 3rd place female Desert Solstice 24 hour track invitational 2020, Tunnel Hill 100 2019 1st Overall Female, 2nd Place Hennepin Hundred 2018, 14th for 100 mile women 2019 and 23rd in 2020.

I believe every race and run is a learning experience that we carry forward. I have a passion for running and a desire to spread my love for running among others around me. 

It is important to me to promote to our running community the importance of inclusion, awareness and acceptance! I also aim to inspire others to break the age barrier.

If you see me out on the race course or on a run you will find me smiling in my happy place.

My running motto

“Just smile, relax and run!”
