Eric Wilden/Dharma Running

Hi, I’m Eric Wilden, Road Runners Club of America certified coach and founder of Dharma Running!  I thought you might like to know a little bit more about me, so here are the basics:

  • I have been studying and practicing Buddhist meditation for over 30 years, with teachers in both the Soto Zen and Kagyu Tibetan traditions. I have a Master of Divinity (M.Div.) degree from Naropa University, where I studied Buddhism in depth and was certified as a mindfulness meditation instructor.

  • I have run 12 marathons, 12 half marathons, one 50k, one 50 miler, 6 Broad Street Runs (Philly's world famous 10-miler for those of you who aren't local), and a smattering of 5Ks and 10Ks. Here are my best times:

  • I am a "later-in-life" runner, having started when I was in my early 30's. I've been running for about 18 years now.

  • My style of coaching is collaborative - I want to engage you in creating a plan to achieve your running goals. Contact me today for more information and to get your journey started!

Sorry, there are no upcoming events
