Julie Culley Biography

After graduating from Rutgers in 2004 with school records and cross country all-American honors to her name, Culley moved directly into a coaching position at Loyola College (Maryland) and ended her days of competitive racing and training. Her hiatus didn’t last long as she returned to training in 2007 and ran a personal best in the 1500m at USA Outdoors that year. Since then, Culley has represented Team USA at World Indoors in the 3,000m, at the World Cross Country Championships, and at World Outdoors in the 5,000m. In 2012 Culley won her first national title on the track at the Olympic Trials and earned her spot at the London Olympic Games.
