June 2021 - Kyle Klenke

Congratulations and thank you to Kyle Klenke, our June Volunteer of the Month! Kyle has been volunteering with us since the Fall of 2015 as a Run Lead and an event volunteer. He is currently running the In Training For Peachtree Alpharetta location and we greatly appreciate his volunteer support!

Do you remember your first time volunteering with Atlanta Track Club? If so, what event was it and what brought you back again?

It was at Big Peach Brookhaven, orientation for Fall 2015 (in-training for Thanksgiving Half Marathon). Amy was unsure I was going to be able to handle being a RL! (She did not know me so I had to prove myself.)

What is your favorite Atlanta Track Club event?

AJC Peachtree Road Race. Could not start off the fourth of July any other way. First race my former boss challenged me to train for.

What is one of your best memories from volunteering at any race?

Atlanta Women's 5K, just in general the positivity and affirmations that you hear during the event.

What is your favorite thing about volunteering with Atlanta Track Club?

The opportunity to "pay it forward". In-person smiles of my friends!

Do you have a favorite volunteer assignment?

Run Lead Crew Chief. Having the responsibility to coordinate an entire in-training location.

Do you do any volunteering in the community beyond Atlanta Track Club?

I have coordinated/delivered household item/toy drives for various charities through the company I work for.

How many Atlanta Track Club events do you typically volunteer at during the year? How many events outside of Atlanta Track Club?

With just a few breaks since 2015 volunteered as a Run Lead for all three in-trainings (Publix's, ITFP, and Fall). Atlanta Women's 5K. Packet Pickup usually at least 2 events during the year. My company's charity drive once a year.

What do you do for a living?

Senior Quality Assurance/Delivery Manager for a vertical software company in the agricultural industry.

Do you have any advice or words of wisdom for any new Atlanta Track Club volunteers?

Take pride in every volunteer duty, no matter how big or small.

Tell us something interesting about yourself - an interesting fact or story that will help us get to know you…

Met my wife at the Atlanta Finest 5K because we were wearing rival university shirts (then found out she was in-training as well).
