Owner and Co-founder
Christopher Hoffman, Owner and Co-founder of FRC, developed a passion for running and endurance training 15+ years ago. The opportunity to stay challenged and to consistently set new personal goals had him hooked from the start. After years of training, Chris continually found himself searching for a place that provided the complete training experience for runners. A community where runners could have all their training needs met to support them as they crushed their performance goals. From there, Chris worked with Nicole DonVito, his longtime friend and training partner, to create and cultivate Formula Running Center – a home for runners.
Chris has competed in numerous marathons, running races and in a variety of triathlons as well. Through his training journey he became an RRCA certified running coach and a NASM certified personal trainer. Today Chris is proud father, a UVA (Go Hoos!) and UPenn alumni, and is dedicated to ensuring FRC is always providing an exceptional experience for all runners.
Chris spent 9 days in Northern Canada dog sledding and sleeping in a tent in temperatures as low as -38℉.
