Olympic runner, Brenda Martinez was at the meet signing autographs and taking pictures with the future stars of the Inland Empire. Brenda was an Olympic semi-finalist in the 1500 meter run. She was the Silver medalist at the outdoor World Championships in the 800 in 2013. She was also the anchor on the World Record setting Distance Medley Relay! Brenda runs for the New Balance Track Club. A big thanks goes out to them, as well for donating all of those shoes that were on the race trophies. More on her background and to follow her training.
Brenda sponsors a running camp for deserving young women from the I.E. The camp held in Big Bear, is provided at little to no cost to the girls who attend. Her camp is held without fanfare and is designed to give the girls a glimpse to the benefits of world class training. Brenda's willingness to give of herself to these young ladies displays her class and the quality of her character.
Thank you, Brenda,
