Meet The Board - Chris Coon

Christopher began running in 1993 at age 12 when he joined his middle school cross country team and has been running ever since. After competing at the high school and collegiate levels, Christopher continued training, partly out of sheer habit, partly because of the joy and sense of clarity brought by each run. He ran his first road marathon in 2007 (St. Louis), an experience he has replicated three additional times (all at Twin Cities). He also completed several ultramarathons, having "raced" his one and only 100-mile event in 2015 (Bighorn 100, Wyoming).

Christopher and his wife Liz moved to Rochester in 2009 and they have 3 young boys: Alexander (5), Everett (3), and Henry (1). Christopher is a former Judicial Law Clerk to the Hons. Kevin Lund and Joseph Wieners and is presently engaged in general private practice with the law firm of Restovich · Braun & Associates in Rochester. In addition to representing civil and criminal clients, Christopher also serves as outside general corporate and litigation counsel to a number of non-profit corporations and associations, an experience he would bring to bear if elected to the RTC Board of Directors.

In addition to his practice, Christopher volunteered his services in support of the Save the Track efforts during the past year. In coordination with other team members, Christopher assisted in negotiations with City and Park Board representatives, appeared on behalf of the Save the Track effort before the Rochester Park Board and Historic Preservation Commission, and aided in the process of reducing the final negotiations to a written agreement which met the needs of the running community for a historically appropriate athletic facility at Soldiers Field, but still protected the Rochester Track Club's ability to meet its obligations under the agreement. Through that endeavor, Christopher came to a greater appreciation for the strength and vitality of the Rochester Track Club and the running community in Rochester and Christopher would consider it an honor serve on the RTC Board in support of that cooperative spirit and cause.
