Marathon Spotlight - Erin Cox


At 20 years old, Erin Cox has already been running longer than most. She began at the age of 12 in Cleveland, Ohio, with 5Ks and 10Ks. Eventually she moved up to half marathons.

But the 34th annual Marine Corps Marathon marks Erin's first 26.2 mile conquest. She signed up for Team Heal Trauma because she felt it would be a "good way to get those who are interested in what I am doing interested in a charity." So from one passion to another, she is carrying the torch.

A Junior at the University of Mary Washington, Erin has been training throughout the beginning of the semester. That is no easy task when you're training for a run that may take 5 hours to finish. And on top of that, she is working hard to reach the fundraising requirement for the team.

With little more than a month of being 20, Erin is sure to be one of the youngest marathoners on October 25th. In fact, the next youngest member on Team Heal Trauma is more than 12 years her senior.
