Phidippides Leaders and Coaches are all unpaid volunteers that give their time to help make Phidippides Track Club a success. While we don’t have a formally elected Board of Directors, our Leaders are an ad hoc group that each contribute their time for specific roles within the club. Most of the Leaders have been Phidippides members for many years and typically meet every month or so and several times in the off season to plan and coordinate for the club.
Coaches – Ryan Turbyfill is a long time member of Phidippides and a USAT Level 1 multi-sport coach as well. Steve Pye, our nationally recognized, professional multi-sport coach who was a key part of Phidippides for many years, was killed while on a training ride in June 2017.
Treasurer - Jeff Ross serves as club treasurer, pays the bills and is also an accomplished runner.
Assistant To The Treasurer - Scott Daily serves as assistant to the club treasurer and additionally is part of the Membership Team. Scott is also a very talented runner.
Membership – Michael Sager and Scott Dailey handle membership duties, including collecting dues/waivers, maintaining the club roster and providing membership cards. Both are accomplished runners. Scott and Michael are also in charge of Email blasts for paid members.
Club Promotion – Marcus Brooks and Jay Survil will be in charge of club promotion. Both have been Phidippides members for years and are accomplished runners. Additionally they will be Co-Waterboys, hauling the Coleman Water Jug to each track workout, which we all very much appreciate!
Social Media – Jeff Ross handles Facebook updates, while Michael Sager manages the Instagram and Twitter accounts. We encourage all members to use Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to post any updates that may be of interest to the group, including training/weekend long runs and racing experiences.

Admin/Secretary - In addition to his duties as a Phidippides Coach, Ryan takes on many of the administration & secretarial duties for our club.

New Members – All Leaders help to drive new membership and welcome new members to our group. Any Leader or club member will help new members understand workout format and pace groups so that they can quickly fit in and start getting faster.
