About Rusty

Rusty @ Chelan Man

Hi, I’m Rusty.

In 2007, I ran my first triathlon — Ironman Canada — and it changed my life. What started as a casual personal challenge inadvertently gave me a mission and a career that still feels like a dream. I founded Rusty Pruden Endurance Coaching in 2010 to spread my passion and the knowledge I’ve accrued as a USAT Level 1 Triathlon Coach and Elite triathlete working toward the dream of representing the United States at the 2016 Olympics.
