Women's Cross Country Coaching Staff
Head Coach: Ben Gurczynskibgurczynski@simpsonu.edu
Ben Gurczynski has been a runner for more then a decade. He has competed from the middle school level to the collegiate level. As a runner from Oregon, Ben has always preferred miles of single-track over running on pavement, which has made the rustic area of Redding a perfect fit.
Ben has been the head coach of cross country for both Simpson's men's and women's programs since 2007. In his first year at Simpson, the Red Hawks had the highest league finish (2nd) in school history and had two runners achieve All-American status.
Besides coaching, Ben spends most of his time with his beautiful wife Stephani. Married in the summer of 2006, Ben and Stephani have enjoyed settling into the Redding community.
