Kurt Decker

Kurt Decker hails from New Hope, Minnesota (a suburb of Minneapolis). He ran for famed running coach, Rick Kleyman, and is an accomplished marathoner and ultra marathoner. Kurt holds the Minnesota state record for 100 miles.

Affectionately called California Kurt for his laid-back style and even-keeled personality, Kurt has created and directed a number of road and trail races around Minnesota.

Kurt joined the Marathon Adventure team in 2012 to direct the inaugural White Continent Marathon & 1/2 Marathon and Punta Arenas Marathon & 1/2 Marathon (2013). Kurt will return in 2014 to direct the White Continent 50k, Marathon & 1/2 Marathon and Punta Arenas 50k, Marathon & 1/2 Marathon. In doing so, he will become only the second person in history to direct ultras on 3 different continents.

When he's not running or directing events, Kurt enjoys spending time with this wife, who is also an accomplished distance runner, and their three children.
