Host and MC - Fitz Koehler
Fitz Koehler, M.S.E.S.S. is one of the most prominent and compelling race announcers and fitness experts in America. As the voice of the Los Angeles Marathon, Philadelphia Marathon, Big Sur Marathon, DC Wonder Woman Run Series, and more, she brings big structure, energy, and joy to racing. She's known for making start lines combustible fun, and for pouring big love on every athlete to cross her finish lines (often paired with hugs). The clinics she teaches at races are jam-packed with powerful content, laughs, and inspiration.
With a passion for helping others live better and longer, she’s appeared on national media outlets and has worked as a spokesperson and speaker for corporations like Disney, Tropicana, Oakley, and Office Depot. Fitz has also inspired millions of kids to get active through her successful school running/walking program, The Morning Mile®. Fitz's memoir, My Noisy Cancer Comeback, was released in October 2020 and has become the go-to source of inspiration for thriving for surviving cancer. Fitz enjoys water sports, running, strength training, animals, hugs, sarcasm, and travel. She lives in Gainesville, Florida, and can be found at Fitzness.com.
