more than just a runner

A professional runner for HOKA ONE ONE Elite and STRIVE Trips, Ty is a US National Team Member, Olympic Trials Qualifier, and World Record Holder; moreover, he is a writer, speaker, coach, and ambassador for community service and inter-cultural exchange.


Ty is a professional long distance runner for HOKA ONE ONE Elite and STRIVE Trips. Since beginning his professional career in 2014, he has been selected to the US National team, earned a qualifying spot at the US Olympic Marathon Trials, set a world record, and improved his personal best times at every distance. Ty focuses on long term development and his passion for the sport and self-improvement.


Community service and philanthropy have always been a part of Ty's life. Whether it's raising funds for STRIVE's service projects in Peru and Kenya through his running or supporting Massachusetts General Hospital around the holidays with his story, he is always thinking about how to give back. "I'd never have gotten to where I was without the support of so many," he said. "So, I try to jump at the chance to support others whenever I can."


From the high mountains of the Andes to the friendly streets of mid-western America, Ty has a love for travel and adventure. His work with STRIVE, travel for races, and independent explorations have left him full of stories and inspiration from the wide world. Many of these experiences are described in his writings and public speaking events.
