Team HMF 2016

The off-season isn’t a quiet place in our office.   We’re working through lots of details … introducing new races and series, researching course tweaks, updating swag offerings, pouring over feedback from runners and race notes.  We like to think this fine-tuning and extra effort makes the difference in why you race with us time and again.

One of the programs that we’re currently updating is Team HMF, and we’ve had a number of inquiries about applications.  While you will see some new faces on Team HMF in 2016, we are not putting out an open call for applications this year. 

Instead, we’re focusing on how the team will support the local running community more.  We’re adding some new elements for the Team to help runners on race-day, whether it’s guiding warm-up runs or helping you prepare for course challenges and getting your mental game race-ready.    The Team will be present as we offer more free clinics and training opportunities to help you all interact and learn from each other’s experiences.

We’d like to hear your ideas as well – how can we, and the Team, go the extra mile for you?  Please share thoughts in comments below or send us a message via Facebook or Twitter to connect directly.

Those of you interested in being part of Team HMF in the future, rest assured we do plan to open up the field to new athletes in 2017.  We will be creating a more thorough and interactive application process to mirror the way the Team members engage in the running community.  Look for details at the end of this year’s season.
