TriLaVie Triathlon Coach Cherie Gruenfeld
Cherie Gruenfeld is one of the most decorated Master’s triathletes in the world today.
Twenty-three years ago, Cherie was an executive in the computer software business, didn’t own a bike and had never been in a lap pool. That all changed when she left the corporate world to attempt an Ironman triathlon which is a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike ride and a 26.2 mile marathon.
Cherie has competed in twenty-seven Ironman races, including the Ironman World Championships in Hawaii 21 times where she has won the world title in her age group thirteen times and currently holds the F70-74 course record. In 2012 and again in 2014 Cherie won “The Double” - the world Half-Ironman (70.3) title and the world Ironman title in the same year. Currently, she holds the F70-74 course records in each. She is the first female over 55 years of age ever to break the twelve hour mark in an Ironman and she did it in Hawaii, the toughest course in the world.
For those and a host of other achievements, Cherie has received many awards, including being honored by the World Triathlon Corporation in 2000 as the Age Grouper of the Year and in 2001 she was featured on the Wheaties cereal box.
Although racing triathlons is a passion, it isn’t her greatest passion. What drives her now is working with a group of at-risk kids in San Bernardino. As the Founder and Director of the Exceeding Expectations Foundation, Cherie is using her love of sport to help the kids become the best they can be.
Her education includes an AA in Computer Science, a BA in English and Education and a Masters in Education/Learning Disabilities.
She has published a book, Become an Ironman, which is available on Amazon.com and in most places where books are sold.

The Norman P. Murray Community and Senior Center is adjacent to the Oso Trail. This stunning (and largely shaded…) trail is composed of pavement, dirt and mulch and winds through gardens along the creek. There is a central 1.3 mile loop and feeder trails for a longer run. Please use the bathrooms at the Community Center prior to running at the trail. Note: The Community and Senior Center shares an entrance with the middle school. Come past the school to the end of Veteran’s Way and park to the left if there is room.
