Some background info on Matt...

Since 1986 Matt has been one of the premier mountain runners in the United States and is considered by many the best high altitude mountain runner in the world. Matt is the current course record holder of the Pikes Peak Ascent and Marathon with times of 2:01:06 and 3:16:39. In 2001 he became the first person to win the Ascent and Marathon on back to back days. He repeated this feat in 2007. He is also the record holder of the fastest times for a flat marathon held at altitude - 2:52:57 at 14,350' and 3:22:25 at 17,060'. In 2004 at his first 50 mile race he broke the course record by over 40 minutes. At the 2005 Leadville Trail 100 he lowered the course record by over 90 minutes to 15:42:59. So far in 2007 Matt has won the 10K trail championships at Vail in 45:23, won the Barr Trail Mountain Race by setting a new course record of 1:29:33, won the Pikes Peak Ascent in 2:12:56 and doubled up with the Pikes Peak Marathon the next day, winning with a time of 3:48:41.
