Join the HSAC Run Club.
We are excited to announce the Kickoff of Harbor Square Running Club coached by local elite marathon runner, Yon Yilma, and Harbor Square’s own trainer, Kevin Kleyla.
The Harbor Square Running Club will provide runners of all ability levels individualized coaching in a group setting. Runners will have a training plan that combines running workouts, recovery runs and strength training in order to help prepare them for race day. Whether you’re training for a 5k, a marathon, or anything in between, you’ll find what you need to achieve your goals.
Yon is excited to begin coaching within the Edmonds community. As an Edmonds native, Yon was a Cross Country and Track stand out while attending Edmonds Woodway High School. He then continued his running career at the University of Alaska Anchorage earning All-American honors in both Cross Country and Track and Field before graduating with his BA in Marketing and Management. After graduating, Yon won his debut marathon at the 2013 Seattle Rock ‘n Roll Marathon.
Since then, in addition to continuing to train to make a USA World or Olympic team, Yon founded Cascade Run Club in order to share his passion for running and the life changing experiences running with a team can bring with others. He sees coaching as a way to help anyone and everyone achieve goals and, just as importantly, build life long friendships.
