Craftsbury Outdoor Center is really excited to welcome Heidi Caldwell to the new position of Running Coordinator. In this role, Heidi will organize and manage our Running Camps, and will also begin to develop running programming for the greater Craftsbury community. Heidi shares our enthusiasm about this expanded vision for running at the center, and brings lots of ideas, experience and energy to this opportunity!
“I’m excited to join the Craftsbury community in this new year-round position and to share the beauty of the Northeast Kingdom with more runners. I’m ready to get the running season started!” writes Caldwell.
Heidi was both a runner and Nordic skier growing up. It was in High School that she realized that running was her real passion. She went on to race cross-country and track at Brown University, where she was a two-time Ivy League champion on the track and multiple school record holder.
After college, she spent two years as assistant coach of the women’s team at Tufts University. Most recently, Heidi has been studying toward a master’s degree in counseling at UVM, which she will complete this spring. She has seen the positive contribution running can make to peoples’ lives and enjoys facilitating that process with runners of all ages.
Having coached at a number of Craftsbury Running Camps last summer, Heidi brings direct experience to the job, as well as the coaching she has done in other settings.
Heidi will start immediately on a part-time basis as she finishes school and then will join us full-time in May.
