Coach Betsy Magato
Running has been part of Betsy’s life since the sixth grade. She raced as a competitive Division 1 sprinter in high school and discovered her love of distance running in college. Betsy is a 13 time marathoner, 10 time Boston-qualifier and has raced to the top of the Empire State Building. She pushes disabled athletes in road races, runs as a pacer, and enjoys the fun challenge of triathlon. While she’s won road races ranging from 5k to 50k, her proudest racing moments have been on the streets of Boston. She finished the 2015 Boston Marathon in 3:19 seven months and two days after the birth of her third child. In 2018 she ran a personal best of 3:15 in brutal weather conditions. 13 days later she finished 9th in her age group at the Big Sur International Marathon and 10th female overall for the Boston 2 Big Sur Challenge. Betsy is passionate about sharing her experience to guide her athletes toward their goals and help them realize that they are capable of much more than they imagine.
