Jenny Simpson Night Q&A
February 26, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
With four global medals and numerous American records to her credit, Boulder’s Jenny Simpson is one of the most successful American track athletes ever. She’ll join us for an engaging evening at In Motion Running on Tues., Feb. 26, with a fun run, follow by pizza and beer (for those over 21) and a Q&A full of inspiring stories, tips and pointers you can apply to your own running. In 2018, Simpson ran the second-fastest women’s mile in U.S. history (4:17.30) and also won her seventh straight Fifth Avenue Mile in New York City (4:18.80). Although she was born in Iowa and went to high school in Florida, she’s made a name for herself in Boulder. She was a record-setting, three-time NCAA champion while at the University of Colorado between 2005-2009. She won the 1500-meter run at the 2011 IAAF World Championships, earned silver medals in the event at the 2013 and 2017 world championships and brought home the bronze medal in the 1500 at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
