Zartosht Ahlers

Shortly after moving to the U.S., Zartosht started running at Thomas Jefferson HS in Arlington in order to make new friends. In college, after a brief stint rowing for the Lightweight Crew Team, he became involved with the Princeton Running Club, serving as Vice-President and Captain, and being named a National Intercollegiate Running Club (NIRCA) 2nd Team All-American.  Zartosht works for an environmental non-profit and is planning on becoming a human rights lawyer. When he isn’t running or napping, Zartosht loves to rock-climb and play board games.
