Assistant Cross Country Coach Erin Donohue

     Erin Donohue enters her second season as an assistant coach with the Philadelphia University Cross Country program.

     An accomplished collegiate runner, Donohue is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she was an eight-time All-American selection for the Tar Heels in Cross Country and both Indoor and Outdoor Track and Field.

     As a sophomore, she set an American record for the Women’s Indoor Distance Medley Relay in 2003, capturing the NCAA Title.  The Haddonfield, N.J., native was also a four-time Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) All-Conference performer as well as a four-time NCAA Academic All-American selection.

     In addition to her success as a collegiate runner, Donohue also placed first at the Penn Relays Olympic Development Mile in 2006, turning in a time of 4:35:99. She also placed first in the 800m at the 2006 Tuppeny Twilight, finishing with a time of 2:05:09 and third at PAA Road to Eugene ‘08 with a time of 2:02:57.  More recently, Donahue finished third in the women’s 1,500m final at the 2007 USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Indianapolis. Running professionally for Nike, the 4:08.22 bronze-medal time earned Donohue a berth on the U.S. team that competed at the 2007 IAAF World Championships in Osaka, Japan.

     Erin represented the United States in Japan, where she made it through to the semifinal heats in the women's 1,500m event.  Donohue's 1,500m time of 4:05.55 ran at the KBC Night of Athletics in Heusden-Zolder, Belgium was the top time by an American woman in the 2007 season.  She also owns the eighth-fastest 800m time (2:01.12) in the country, which was earned at Province of Liége Meeting in Naimette-Xhovemont, Belgium.

     Erin brings an enormous amount of elite experience to the Cross Country program at Philadelphia University.  She is a great asset in the development of the overall physical fitness and running performance of all the student-athletes on the team.
