Ben Syzek

Ben has been working with CHP since early 2013. Starting off as one of CHP’s first athletes, he spent over a year and half training in the CHP system before joining as an endurance coach in late 2014.

Ben is an accomplished ultramarathon runner with numerous top 10 finishes. He has competed in a wide range of distances from marathons all the way up to 100 mile races. His passion is for competing in technical, mountainous ultramarathons with significant elevation gains.

As a CHP coach, Ben’s primary focus is on working with hybrid athletes that wish to improve their running, both in terms of speed and endurance, while still maintaining their strength. He currently works with a diverse set of athletes looking to improve their running, including elite OCR and CrossFit athletes as well as strength athletes preparing for their first ultramarathons.
