Megan Cunningham is an elite distance runner competing in distances from 3,000m to marathons.
While competing for the University of Missouri, Megan and her family were involved in a traumatic car accident which left her unsure if she’d ever be able to walk, much less run,again. Through patience, perseverance, and a bit of stubbornness, Megan returned to the track after nine months off of any running. Megan was able to overcome her injuries and walked away from her collegiate career as a two time SEC Conference Champion (5k and 10k) and a two time NCAA Academic All-American.
Post-collegiality, Megan has shifted her focus towards racing on the roads as well as coaching fellow runners. Most recently, Megan won the Virginia Beach Rock N’ Roll Half Marathon and competed in the 2020 USA Olympic Marathon Trials.
