store leader, Columbia
Austin Clark has been with the Charm City Run family since 2011, when he was a sophomore at Towson University. A year round runner, Austin was a decorated track and cross country athlete at Glenelg High School before coming to Towson. Despite a serious interest in running, Austin opted out of competing competitively in college in order to focus on his studies. Majoring in Exercise Science, Austin graduated with honors from Towson in 2014 and was awarded the Outstanding Senior in Exercise Science award. During college, Austin gave a lot of his free time to completing his independent research studies focusing on the credibility of weight management apps/websites. He also has a passion for studying and understanding the human body when it comes to movement, kinesiology, and biomechanics. Austin has worked in a variety of medical settings, including Physical Therapy offices and at the Maryland Exercise and Robotics Center of Excellence.
Having started as a part time employee, Austin is now an Assistant Manager at our Columbia location. He is still an avid runner and now also coaches at his former high school in Howard County. His favorite distance is the 5k, but has also run everything from the 800m on the track to half-marathons. In his free time, he enjoys fishing and watching the O’s!
