Hi, I'm Ric Rojas, coach to some of the America's best runners and founder of Rise Athletics.


Based in Boulder, Colorado, I help performance-oriented athletes reach their running potential in person and online. From Olympic Trials prospects, National and World-Class masters, to committed young athletes, my team and I work with a range of athletes untied by their dedication to the sport.


As an athlete, I competed at national and international levels starting in high school  and extending through to the masters scene. In the days before supershoes, I held the 15km World Record, set a 5,000m PR of 13:39.92 and won multiple USATF national titles. During my professional career, I was consistently ranked among the top 10 US road racers, competed in two Olympic Trials, and represented Team USA in two Pan American Games.


On the coaching side, I have successfully helped my own daughter, Nell Rojas, become one of America's best marathoners, capturing two top 10 finishes in the Boston Marathon and a 2:25:57 marathon PR. With a focus on facilitating individual peak performance, my coaching has consistently yielded results across the spectrum, including Olympic Trials qualifiers, nationally ranked high school runners, and world-ranked masters runners.
