We’re very proud and excited to announce that Run SMART coaches Mike Smith and Chris Miltenberg have accepted head coaching positions at two of the top track programs in the country.
Today, it became official that Smith will replace Miltenberg as head women’s cross country coach at Georgetown University. “I can’t imagine a better situation for Georgetown than to choose Mike Smith as a coach,” said Jack Daniels. “Flagstaff’s loss is definitely Georgetown’s gain, I believe Mike can be one of the most outstanding college coaches this country has seen.” That’s an endorsement from the greatest running coach ever!
Earlier, Miltenberg made it official with Stanford where he will become Director of Track & Field. Interesting side note, Mike was instrumental in bringing Chris into the Run SMART family and in a way Milt has now returned the favor at Georgetown! Miltenberg leaves Georgetown in good hands and at the top of the sport having just won the Women’s NCAA XC Championships.
Check out Erin Strout’s fond farewell to Mike from Flagstaff. He will certainly be missed by many but we’re happy to announce he’ll still be returning to Flag in the summers for our annual Run SMART Retreats!
