Team Member Bio: Jeremy Huckins

Jeremy Huckins
Age: 26
Location: Lebanon, NH
Blog: mtnhuck

He started running at Merrimack Valley Middle School and quickly realize that running was a much better fit than sports requiring coordination. He ran for Bishop Brady under the tutelage of Kevin Beck, who first introduced him to CMS and mountain running. During his senior year he won 4 of his first 5 races until a knee injury derailed any hopes of running quickly for the remainder of the year. In the winter months he partook in cross-country skiing, where he won the DIII state title his senior year. He then attended Bowdoin College, running for the first two years then concentrating on skiing for the remaining two, where he consistently scored for the team. Since college he has been active in the USATF-NE mountain running and grand prix circuits as a member of CMS.

After working in Boston for the last 2 years, Jeremy is currently studying Neuroscience in the training friendly atmosphere of the Upper Valley and is happy to be living near legitimate elevation change.
