Ryan Harris was born and raised in Virginia, and has been a runner for as long as he can remember. As a 1st grader, Ryan started running for fun with the middle school cross country team that his dad coached. He soon fell in love with the sport, and the challenge of seeing how fast he could run. Since then, he hasn’t looked back as he ran cross country and track and field all through middle school at Christ the King, and high school at Granby. Ryan began working at Running Etc in the summer of 2021, and is interested in the possibility of pursuing the field of sports medicine or sports psychology. Ryan now runs track and field as a freshman for Davidson College in North Carolina, and looks forward to his college career.
