Meet the Appleseeds Coaches

Head Coaches

Josh Maple

After running cross country and track at Adrian College in Michigan, I was asked to stay and be an Assistant Coach for the college team. Since college, I have coached all different ages in track, cross country, and road running the past twenty years. I currently coach Leo Middle School Cross Country and Track and an elementary cross country team and running club at the Parkview YMCA.

I also still run competitively in road races in distances from the 5K to the marathon. My personal records are 1:14:21 in the half marathon and 2:40:59 in the marathon.

I really enjoy coaching and watching kids have fun running and improving. I believe in age appropriate running and running games to help kids develop an appreciation for running, fitness, and reaching their goals.

“As a seasoned veteran, whether it’s running the roads through fresh-fallen snow or running the trails, I enjoy being on the team, racing, and sharing the passion of running with others. That has made my life special.”
