Biography

Charles Trujillo has come a long way from being a pool rat, riding his Big Wheel, and outrunning the neighborhood bully! He began his running career by setting the 1984 Colorado State record at Northglenn High School in the two-mile event. Following that early success, Trujillo was awarded a full-running scholarship to the University of Colorado, Boulder in 1984. At CU he won three Big Eight titles and earned three NCAA D1 All-American Certificates. After graduating from CU, Trujillo coached track and field at CU before racing professionally for six years on team Reebok. During that time he joined two US world teams, finishing 11th overall at the Junior World Cross Country Championships in Portugal, and competing in the World Half Marathon Championships in Oslo, Sweden.

After training in Mexico for three months prior to the 1998 Boston Marathon, at the age of 33, Trujillo decided to retire from competitive running. Over the years his body had gotten pretty banged up and he no longer could manage the training required to be competitive in long distances. Two knee surgeries during his college career did not help. In short, Trujillo was burned out and getting whupped in races! So he stepped away from the sport and competing in general. By 2010, Trujillo felt that 12 years away from competitive running had actually helped his body recover from all those years of hard-core training and racing. It has taken more than two years to get back into top racing form, but the hard work has paid off. After turning 45 in 2011, Trujillo decided to resurrect his athletic career, but now as a triathlete.

After only eight races in his first triathlon season in 2011, he realized that he could still lay the hammer down! Competing as a true master’s division amateur has brought him a great deal of personal satisfaction, and regularly beating fast guys half his age feels pretty good too. His first place finish overall at the Denver Sprint Triathlon and a fourth place in LA in 2011 persuaded him to set his sights even higher moving forward.

He now plans to train and race with a vengeance, with the goal of dominating his age group and being a serious overall podium threat at every race he enters. In fact, from 2011 to 2019, he logged over 35 AG podium victories, and in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 he earned USTF All American status.
