Matt Deters - Meet The Elites

Matt Deters


Matt’s life long interest in running began in 8th grade, when his buddy forged his signature on the track team sigh-up sheet. In high school he began to learn from a local coach and ended up doing well, winning the league and district meets in the 1600m run his junior year. After walking on to the track team in college, he made the decision to quit so that he could concentrate on work and eventually stopped running until 2010.

He joined Capital Area Runners in 2013 and after recovering from a partially torn Achilles tendon I began to put in serious mileage and focused on the half and full marathon in 2015. He currently works at George Washington University and does the majority of his runs by running to and from work when not working out with his club team (CAR).

When asked about the Alexandria Turkey Trot “I chose the Alexandria Turkey trot mostly because it has a history of fast competition and a unique small-town feel to the race.” Adding “Several of my teammates have done the race in the past and it has been their favorite Turkey Trot.”
