Eastern Shore Training (EST) was established in 2014 by RRCA-certified running coach Rob Gomez (pictured on the right) as a way for him to share his passion for long-distance road racing with others.


After competing at high levels in both cross country and track in high school and then in college, Rob spent a number of years away from running. It was his return to racing with the completion of the 2007 Chicago Marathon when he re-discovered his appreciation for running. Since then, Rob has been able to channel this passion into a number of successes in road racing, most notably the New England Runner Magazine's Maine Runner of the Year in 2013, a win at the 2013 Maine Marathon, two top-40 finishes at the Boston Marathon and a total of eight marathons in under 2:25.

In addition to individual successes, Rob has been able to contribute to the Maine running community in various ways. In particular, he held positions as vice president and then president of the board between 2011 and 2014 for Dirigo Racing Club, Maine's premier road racing club. He was also head coach of the girls' and boys' cross country teams at Biddeford High School in 2009 and 2010.

Since 2014, Rob has been able to share what he has learned over his 15+ years of successful running and racing with over 150 clients of all ages and ability levels. Whether you're aiming to finish your first 5k or looking for your next marathon PR, a training plan from EST will help you get where you'd like to go!
