"I've never been to Crested Butte, so I'm super excited about exploring big mountains that are brand new to me; the added benefit and challenge of high altitude really sweetens the deal!"

Matt is a lifelong runner and outdoor enthusiast. He got his start with cross country and track in grade school before competing for the University of Illinois. He always ran trails growing up, but only began competing on the trails in 2010. The community that he was introduced to through trail and ultrarunning is incredible, and it has made his last few years of running some of his most rewarding. He likes to run 50k - 100k trail and mountain races in beautiful locations around the U.S. and world. He finds passion in exploring new trails with new people.
