Coach: Denise Joplin

I began my triathlon career in 2007 as a complement to collegiate rowing.  I earned my B.S. in Cell in Molecular Biology from Auburn University, then my Masters in Biomedical Science from the University of Virginia. I currently own Runner's High, a running specialty shop in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. In addition to to day-to-day shoe fit/sales, we specialize in group training programs from 5K's to triathlons. 

  • Personalized Training Plans designed for your fitness and goals.
  • Data based training for triathlon, cycling, and running (access to Training Peaks or Garmin Connect preferred, but not mandatory)
  • Training for High Performance
  • Training for beginner triathletes and kids

Denise has been competing in multisport events for nearly a decade and is consistently a competitive age grouper with multiple age group wins, podiums, and overall wins.  She hopes to bring this experience back to Hattiesburg to promote the sport of triathlon. She has extensive mentoring and coaching experience through training programs in both running and triathlon (Huntsville, Charlottesville, Hattiesburg). She is a USA Track and Field certified coach.
