Meet the Staff: Chris

Get to know the fit professionals lacing up your shoes at Big River Running. This month, meet Chris.

In his words: My name is Chris Erxleben, and I am from Sullivan, MO and still live there today. I like working at Big River because I enjoy the community Big River has built throughout the years. I most recently attended Webster University where I ran cross country and track. My proudest running moment was all the way back in high school when I managed to earn an All-State medal in the 800. My favorite place to run is Meramec State Park just outside of Sullivan. My future running goals include building up to higher distance races, including eventually an UltraMarathon. I am proud “dog dad” of 2 (Rocky a Boston Terrier and Cece a Pug/Chihuahua) with my wife, Laura. Outside of running, my hobbies include reading, video games, and collecting trading cards. Visit me at Big River South City!
