Running
Maegan Krifchin’s love affair with running started when she was in high school. She was especially talented at middle distances, including the 800m, which earned her a scholarship to Syracuse University, where her love for the sport continued to grow.

Earning All-Big East and ECAC honors while representing the Orange, she continued that momentum after graduation shifting focus to long distance racing where she was finding even more success. Krifchin debuted in the half marathon in 2011 with a time of 1:11:04, and has been running as a professional ever since.

Today, her focus is primarily on the marathon, where she looks improve her personal record and gain more experience.
