Simon Escorcia was born in the Land of LincolnĀ and lived in rural Illinois until the age of ten when the family moved across the Mississippi to Burlington, Iowa. He attended Notre Dame High School in Burlington, Iowa where he played basketball, ran track and cross country.

Simon went to Luther College in Decorah, Iowa to study business. While at Luther, Simon ran cross country and track for the Norse and eventually met his future wife Kelly, who also ran on the Norse women’s cross country team.

After college, Simon got his MBA at St. Ambrose University in Davenport, Iowa. Post college he worked as benefits and compensation analyst before leaving the corporate world to start Colorado Race Timing. Colorado Race Timing has grown into one of the most successful timing companies in the state of CO, timing over 100 races last year alone.

Simon continues running post-college and has completed 15 marathons with a personal best of 2:43:40 at the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon. His post-college PRs include a 17:00 in the 5K, 35:59 in the 10K, and 1:18:50 in the half marathon. While Simon continues to run and race, he is no longer chasing PRs and balances his running with functional weight training.

Simon and his wife Kelly live in Centennial, Colorado with their two children. Simon enjoys spending time with his kids, working on basketball fundamentals and watching them play basketball, lacrosse, and run in local 5Ks.
