Matt Green Photo

Co-Founder + Lead Captain,
District Running Collective

Matt co-founded District Running Collective (DRC), an urban run crew that elevates running as a sport while positively impacting the community. Through DRC, Matt has successfully created successful events that show residents that healthy can be fun. Along with the weekly run group that has attracted 100+ runners of all levels to hit the pavement weekly, Matt has also created several, unique events including a midnight run through H Street Corridor and a 5k in Southeast in partnership with the Broccoli City Festival and many more. Matt has used the run group to raise money for scholarships and non-profits. From working with the DCPD to ensure safe running to helping small, local businesses gain exposure by using them as meet-up locations, Matt is committed to bettering all of Washington, DC.

When not running through the streets of DC, Matt serves as a creative professional for both federal and non-governmental clients.
