Our Coaches

Wallace Robertson

Assistant Coach - Facilities Manager

I’ve been involved with USA Fit Shreveport since the first year 2008.  I was the Green Marathon group coach and became co-organizer during that year. I was the Organizer and Blue Marathon Group head coach for 4 years after that, and continued as Assistant Coach for the Blue Group and Course Coordinator through March 2019.

Years Running:I ran in high school, but I didn’t really get serious again until a few years after college when I began entering 5K and 10K fun runs. I’ve gradually increased my race distances and training mileage since then.

Number of Marathons/Half Marathons:I ran my first marathon in April 2005 and have run 20 so far. I am registered for the California International Marathon in Sacramento in December 2019. I’ve run about 35 half marathons and two 50K (31 mile) trail Ultramarathons.

Hobbies besides running:home improvement projects, a large stack of books on my read pile, and a dog who needs a lot of attention.

Favorite Race:For marathons, Boston; the whole experience is incredible. The Firecracker 5K on July 4th and Autumn Breeze 10K are my favorite local races. The Crescent City Classic 10K in New Orleans and the Shiner Half Marathon in Shiner, Texas have the best post-race parties.

Favorite Distance:Half Marathons and 10Ks
