About

Margot Appleton started training with Emerging Elites in the Summer of 2017 before her freshman year at Portsmouth Abbey. With a background in swimming and running, Margot was looking to build on her runner-up finish at the Mass Middle School XC Championship in 2016. Margot's summer training set her up for a very strong freshman year, including capturing the EIL XC title and earning Boston Globe All-Scholastic honors.

After swimming during the winter months, Margot returned to the outdoor track and ran several PRs including 5:01 for the mile, which earned her second place at the New Balance Nationals Outdoor Girls Freshman Mile.

As a sophomore, Margot had a 90-second PR in XC running 18:37, which made her one of the top 50 all-time fastest high school girls to race at historic Franklin Park. She repeated as the EIL XC champion in the fall of 2018, earning her second EIL MVP honors. Margot capped of her cross country campaign by winning the New England Prep School Division 3 cross country title and racing to a 21st place in 19:02 at the Footlocker Northeast Regional at Van Cortlandt Park.

For her cross county efforts in fall 2018, the Boston Globe again selected Margot Appleton for Cross Country All-Scholastic honors. She competed on the Portsmouth Abbey squash team during the winter season of her freshman year.

For her fall 2019 cross country season, Margot turned in several strong performances, including a runner-up finish of 17:14 in the Women's Championship 5K at Boston Mayor's Cup at Franklin Park. Margot lowered her Franklin Park PR by 83 seconds and has now run the third fastest high school girl performance on the standard Franklin Park 5K course.

Margot traveled down to the Bronx for Foot Locker Northeast Regionals looking to improve upon her 21st place in the 2018 championship girls race, where she ran 19:02. Getting out well with the leaders, she ran a brisk 17:54 at Van Cortlandt Park to place sixth overall in the championship girls race and qualify for Foot Locker Nationals in Balboa Park in San Diego.

In her first appearance at Foot Locker Nationals, Margot raced to 22nd place in 18:07.3 on the iconic Balboa Park course.  For her 2019 cross country campaign, Margot was recognized by Gatorade as the 2019 Rhode Island Runner of the Year.
