Meet Dean Silkstone, manager at Georgetown Running Company.
Dean is Georgetown Running Company’s token sprinter. Born in Manchester, England, he’s now proud to call the Commonwealth of Virginia his home. Dean laced up his first pair of sprint spikes in 1999, which he purchased from the Running Specialty Group’s own Road Runner Running Store in Richmond, Virginia. Dean ran the 100m and 200m for Benedictine High School, before moving on to compete at the college level for Christopher Newport University in Newport News, VA. Following a brief stint in the corporate world, Dean’s career returned to running in his mid-20s, when he returned to Benedictine High School to coach the sprint team. Dean began his work with the Running Specialty Group in January 2013, at Road Runner before taking the helm of the Georgetown Running Company in May 2013.
