Scott Carpenter - Meet The Elites

Scott Carpenter

Scott is from Lenox, Massachusetts and began running competitively for his middle/high school cross country team in 7th grade.   He is now in his eleventh year of running and has been fortunate to improve incrementally every year.  That slow progression is what got him hooked in the sport and how he got where he is today. 


He is a 5th year graduate student at Georgetown University, and a five-time All-American with one year of eligibility remaining in indoor and outdoor track this winter and spring. 


“I could never have imagined running would take me as far as it already has, and I now have my sights set of running professionally.” He said when asked about where he plans to go after college, as for running The Alexandria Turkey Trot “I typically like to go home to Massachusetts for Thanksgiving break but with a key race coming up two weeks after this event, I have decided it would be best not to travel too far.  This race distance and the competitive fields work perfectly with my training leading up to my next race.”


He placed 5th in the NCAA Steeplechase Final this spring, 10th in the NCAA Cross Country National Championships last fall, and anchored his team’s DMR in 3:57 to place 3rd at the NCAA indoor National Championships in March.  He also won the Big East Conference Indoor Mile this winter.
