Coach Rachel McGovern

Meet Coach Rachel McGovern, originally from Pocatello, Idaho. Rachel boasts a background as a high school state cross-country champion and an all-American performer in the 1600m. During her time at Idaho State University in the Big Sky Conference, she consistently achieved impressive performances, including multiple 17-minute 5k races and a 21-minute 6k cross country time. With a Bachelor of Science and a master's degree already under her belt, Rachel is currently pursuing a PhD in political science at UT.

Under Rachel's guidance at TRC, athletes undergo four practice sessions weekly, running from Monday through Thursday. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, the focus is on interval training on the track, incorporating intervals of varying lengths and intensities. Mondays and Wednesdays, however, are dedicated to easy-paced runs aimed at recovery.
