York began running in middle school to stay in shape for basketball. He soon became hooked on the sport and ran in college for Wayne State College.

York has competed in the USATF Marathon, 8K Club, and Club T & F Championships. His passion lies in the 5K and half marathon distances, although recently he has begun dipping his toes in shorter trail races, having completed 3 to date, including 1 in Canada.

York currently lives with his wife and cat in Omaha, NE, where he competes for the elite-development club, Team Nebraska. Between running and studying to become an occupational therapist, York works part time at Red Dirt Running Company. York hopes his passion and knowledge for running will encourage others to pursue a healthier lifestyle and explore the outdoors.
