Ryne Anderson

CTS Senior Coach – Specializes In Ultrarunning Coaching


“I believe the most successful athletes are the ones who find joy and fulfillment in their running by balancing training, racing, and life. Quality, not the quantity of workouts, will improve each athlete’s fitness, but not at the expense of losing that all-important social, emotional, and physiological balance.”


Coach Bio:

I have been coaching ultrarunners since 2018 and joined CTS as a full-time coach in 2021. I grew up playing baseball and football and enjoyed a brief stint playing college football before injuries forced me to end my playing career in 2010. My passion for athletics transitioned to the endurance realm when I decided to do my undergraduate thesis project on the history, physiology, and training methodologies of triathlon. My research culminated with me completing a half-Iron distance triathlon which introduced me to the wonderful highs and lows of training and racing. Soon after, I found my true passion running trail and ultramarathon events.

As a lifelong athlete, I have always geeked out on the technical aspects, science, and interpersonal dynamics of sport and coaching. Coaching endurance athletes allows me to live out that passion by building meaningful relationships with my athletes while getting them most prepared for their goal events through individualized and specific training. I believe trail and ultrarunning brings out the best in people due to the supportive community and commitment and consistency that is required in training to reach one’s highest potential.
