Jordan Psaltakis

Like many distance runners, Jordan defected from the soccer field in high school, finding his home on the track and on the cross country course at Poolesville High School in Maryland. Jordan went on to compete at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC). His collegiate career was a series of highs and lows as he spent time during his 5-year stint competing for both the running club and the varsity squad, battling illnesses and injuries. While working towards earning a Master’s Degree during his 5th year, he ran personal bests during the cross country season in the 8k, and during the indoor track season in the 3k and 5k.

With GRC, Jordan continues to enjoy the hard training with the teammates and friends GRC has afforded him. His focus is road racing, targeting personal bests from the 5k to the marathon. Jordan lives and works in Washington DC.
