Since then, Mark has held several roles within the club. Beginning as a co-captain of the Sprint Team, he was voted to be a member of the Leadership Team and has served in that role since 2013. While helping to direct the growth of the GSTC, he was a member of the 2013 USATF-NJ DMR team that helped secure the first National Championship as a club.
