Emma Coburn Returns to Birmingham Wine 10K

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama – The ASPIRE Sports Institute has announced that 2017 World Champion and 2016 Rio Olympic bronze medalist, Emma Coburn will be returning to Birmingham for the Birmingham Wine 10K on March 7, 2020.  Coburn will be making an appearance at packet pick-up the day before the race and participating in pre-race and post-race festivities to meet race participants and distribute awards.
 
In Rio, Coburn became the first American woman to win an Olympic medal in the 3,000-meter steeplechase, earning a bronze medal with a new American record of 9:07.63 and followed that up with a gold medal performance at the 2017 World Championships in London. Coburn is passionate about helping young athletes and inspiring runners to work hard to do their best. Her continuous work through youth sports camps around the world is a natural fit for The ASPIRE Sports Institute, which exists to optimize the athlete experience through performance, education, innovation, and implementation. We do this with each individual by partnering with youth teams, clubs, and municipalities.
 
“We are excited to welcome Emma back to Birmingham and to have her at the 2020 Birmingham Wine 10K,” said NCSS Executive Director Joseph Longoria. “Since her visit in 2017, we have stayed in contact and kept a relationship with Emma as she has become one of the greatest track and field ambassadors worldwide. The genuine attention and time she shows her fans is a unique quality and we know she will elevate the experience for our runners.”  Coburn added, “I'm always inspired by kids who love sports and are active. I look forward to coming back to Birmingham and supporting youth sports excellence and sports safety through the work and mission of The ASPIRE Sports Institute.”
After attending high school at Crested Butte Community School in Colorado, Coburn attended the University of Colorado, where she would become an NCAA champion in the 3000-meter steeplechase.  In 2012, following her collegiate career, Coburn qualified for the 2012 Olympic Team and finished ninth at the Olympic games in London. She is the reigning women’s 3000-meter steeplechase world champion and will return to Doha, Qatar later this year to defend her title against the very best in the world.
“The running community in Birmingham will have an amazing opportunity to meet and visit with one of USA Track and Field’s greatest athletes,” Longoria said. “We hope everyone will come out and give a big Magic City welcome to a great Olympian and even better person.”
