Run Coaching & Education

Who we are


The Chesapeake Running Academy aims to keep running fun for long-term athletic development at any age to live life full of movement, with education on technique, tactics, and training to excel in sport and reduce the risk of injury while crushing goals and crossing the finish line with confidence.


As the owner/head coach, Melissa is a life-long learner and educator, who wants to share information with those willing to receive it, while providing equitable and accessible opportunities to all.
