Jakov Philosof is a RRCA and USATF certified coach. Jakov has been in the running industry for the past 15 years. His passion for running began in Israel in 2003, as he ran in the local parks starting out small and working his way up to the major marathons. His first 5k run was in 2011 at JSUMC and ran at the RIO Olympics in 2016.

As Jakov joined the running community he noticed no runner was alike, age, style, etc... As long as they kept their eye on the goal they reached it, being part of a running club keeps you going as well.

Jakov has success teaching runners the skills and motivating them to keep going.

Jakov says: Running is a great metaphor for life: You have to start somewhere and as you get going, as long as you keep moving, you will hit the finish line and accomplish your goal.
Jakov Philosof, Certified Running Coach will be conducting a weekly training session for beginners and experts exclusive for The Center Run Runners.
